Clear Onion Soup

dsc_0435

I am not a huge fan of clear soups. Therefore the logical conclusion is that the husband is. He does not understand why soups need to be creamy, rich purees as against light soups with lots of flavour and I fail to comprehend why I need such clear soups when water will do the trick. Plus I don’t like straining out all the veggies. I feel super guilty about wasting them. Chalk and cheese!

Since he was travelling most of the month, I indulged myself with all the creamy soups to my liking. He returned and has been cribbing for the past three days about not having clear soup. So today’s soup is for the husband.

Serves 2

Recipe adapted from here.

WHAT WE NEED

Olive oil                                    1 tbsp

Onion, medium                      1

Garlic cloves                            2

Carrot, medium                      1

Soy sauce                                  1-2 tsp

Chilly sauce                             1/2 tsp

Vegetable stock                      3 cups

Salt & Pepper

Button mushroom                1

Spring onion, chopped        2 tsp

 

WHAT TO DO

  • Dice the onion, garlic and carrot
  • Heat oil and add the onion and garlic
  • Once the onion starts browning, add the carrot and fry for 1-2 minutes
  • Add the soy sauce and chilly sauce and mix well

  • Simmer for 12-15 minutes
  • Turn off the heat and strain the vegetables

  1. haha 🙂 mine is a story with a twist – I love the light and clear soups, and kids love both creamy / light soups, but the husband would steer clear of soup, unless its a formal sit-down dinner which he can’t wriggle out :p – this onion soup is being bookmarked, Sowmya !
