Onion cream soup - refined, tender, velvety, fragrant. If you have not tried this soup, it's time to cook it, especially products are all quite affordable. Of course you will have to spend time preparing, but believe me, it's worth it. And I propose to serve this soup with freshly baked homemade loaf.
The first thing to cook is chicken broth. I this step is skipped, because the broth I had. You can prepare it in the usual way for yourself.
In a saucepan with a thick bottom, melt the butter with the addition of olive oil.
In the melted butter, put the sliced onion, 1 tbsp sugar and garlic. Stir.
Simmer the onion over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. During this time, the sharp onion flavor will go away, and the onion will become soft and transparent.
Add dry white wine to the onion and simmer for another 15-20 minutes. During this time, the smell of alcohol will evaporate, and the onion will thicken slightly.
Add 2 tablespoons of flour to the saucepan, mix and simmer the onion for 2 minutes.
Here is such consistence must become onion mass.
Pour the salted chicken broth, add the thyme and simmer the soup for 20 minutes.
Important: do not cover the saucepan with a lid. Condensation from the lid will add extra liquid to the soup, and we need to thicken it.
Remove the thyme sprigs and add the heavy cream. Stir, heat for 1 minute.
Punch the soup until smooth and creamy.
Return to the heated saucepan.
Loaf cut, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with grated cheese and warm in the oven for 5 minutes.
Pour the onion cream soup in warmed plates and served to the table. Separately, you can submit olives, herbs, chili peppers.
The loaf can be served separately or directly in a bowl of soup.Serve the onion cream soup with a freshly baked homemade loaf.
