I whomped together a French Onion Soup, cooked up from basic ingredients in a ThermoMix.
I wound up with give-me-more flavoured soup, & just one item (3 pieces) to wash. That included all cooking, & serving (the top of the ThermoMix is a juggy thing).
The recipe is very simple (adapted from the original):
- 4 large sweet onions (or just ordinary onions), sliced
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- ½ teaspoon dried mustard
- 2—3 teaspoons shoyu (soy sauce, tamari, Braggs, etc.)
- ¼ cup red wine (I used dark grape juice)
- 6 cups veggie stock (use a good one!)
To make it, cook the marg up in a saucepan, then add the onions & salt, for one hour (the ThermoMix’s timer came in very handy here)
Add everything else except the stock. If you’ve used the wine, give it a few minutes to cook down.
Add the stock, bring it to a boil, & you’re done... well... except for the eating, & the wishing you’d cooked more. (-:
