ThermoMixes are useful!

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. (-:
