Creamy onion soup, minimalist-style
You will need a little patience to let the onions sweat, from there the soup is super quick to make, and it uses only a handful of delicious ingredients.
You will need (feeds 2 to 3):
5 medium-large onions
3 tbsp coconut oil
2 garlic cloves
5 ladle chicken bone broth
1 tbsp ghee
a wee pinch of Himalayan rock salt
a wee pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
fresh thyme leaves
freshly ground coarse black pepper, to taste
1. Peel then halve the onions, and slice thinly.
2. Melt the coconut oil, add the thin onion slices and on a medium-low heat sweat the onions for 20 to 25 mins, stirring occasionally, until nicely soft.
3. Add the thinly sliced garlic. Fry for a minute or two, until aroma is released.
4. Add 2 ladles of chicken broth and the gee, then immerse a hand blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.
5. Add the remaining bone broth, season with salt and nutmeg, bring to boil, then reduce to minimum and gently simmer for 2 to 3 mins.
6. Serve into soup bowls, sprinkle with freshly ground coarse black pepper. Enjoy!
