Made It #2
~Since I pinned lots of recipes on my Pinterest boards through the years, but never made anything from the pinned items, I've set myself a goal to try one recipe per week to reduce the overload~
Last week I made the delicious Stroopwafel Cake, that was gone in less than an hour (no, not only because of me) and let you know that I would make French Onion Soup this week. Well, I did.
I still remember the first time I ate onion soup. The name by itself didn't make me particular enthusiastic, but I was eating out with my parents while we were on vacation on Menorca and they pushed me a bit to try the soup, because they tried it before and were quite lyric about it. So I couldn't say no. Glad I didn't, because I'm a onion soup fan ever since.
I didn't follow the recipe exactly, because after making onion soup a lots of times, I know what I like and what not, but it's a good basic recipe.
Instead of four yellow onions, I used:
2 yellow onions
2 red onions
1 white onion
1 sweet onion
1 pink onion
And instead of beef broth I used vegetable broth (I'm a vegetarian).
I left the sugar out, but added a clove of garlic, a teaspoon of dried thyme and 150 ml of dry white wine.
Oh, and very important: be lavish with the cheese!
Deliciousness all around!
For next week I would like to make Cheese Croquets. My mouth is watering just by looking at them!
