French Onion Soup

Hi Readers,

Bhavna here!

Today I am going to share a very famous soup which is called French Onion Soup. And though traditionally this soup is made in beef stock or may be chicken stock, I made it completely vegetarian. Not because I don't eat non-vegetarian but because I did not have stock. I will also tell you how this can be made with chicken stock. French Onion soup is usually made with caramelized onions but I have tried a different variation here!

It was actually quick thinking on my feet as Raj was not feeling well and he wanted something hot to sip on. Also, my kids love soup. So, I looked into kitchen and thought of making this wonderful soup.

As per Raj who is very picky about the food he eats, it tasted yummmmm. So I was glad to hear that! Even the kids lapped it up!!!

So, here is the recipe for French Onion Soup:

  1. 1 bowl finely chopped onions
  2. 2-3 big garlic cloves chopped
  3. 1 tsp butter
  4. 2 tablespoon grated cheese
  5. 1/2 cup milk
  6. 4 cups water. Now if you have stock, use stock instead of water. The flavor would be even more. But that's not to say this one is any less. ;-)
