Onion Cream Soup
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Base recipe is solid. I added celery, shallots & a bit of red pepper flakes & Worcestershire sauce and pureed the soup till smooth. The recipe is excellent as far as proportions. I also had no fake cheese so used a bit of extra chedder.
I used to buy the canned cream soup at the store, but after trying this recipe, I'm hooked on homemade. This was so rich and creamy and really easy! I am going to use it as a base for cream of mushroom, and cream of chicken and even broccoli cheese soup. I did also make a few changes, I didn't have velveeta but used Kraft sliced cheese as it is also processed and I also used coconut milk. I think that made it a little creamier. Thanks so much!
Great flavor and easy to make! Made as written except mixed milk and half & half (as I had some to use up). Served with a homemade loaf of crusty bread. Perfect for a cool fall dinner.
This is delicious. My boyfriend loves it and between us we have 4 kids ages 10,11, 12 &13 and even all 4 kids love it --That's saying a lot. I used about a 1/3 of a cup of white cooking wine after the onions were tender and let it simmer a couple minutes then added the broth, bouillon, and pepper, also used rice flour to thicken since i am gluten free. This recipe is a keeper !!!
I just made this for lunch and had to write a review right away. This was delicious! I made 2 small changes. I didn't have Velveeta but did have Cheez Whiz so I used 1/4 cup of that. Plus we only have skim milk and I have learned the hard way that doesn't always work well for these recipes. However I had 3/4 cup of heavy cream left over from a dessert recipe I tried . I figured the extra fat in that would off-set the fat-free skim milk so I used it plus 3/4 cup of milk. I will make this again!
I add extra Velveeta because I am a cheese freak. But, this recipe is so simple and delicious I make it quite often. YUMMY!
This was wonderful...I will reduce the amount of onion next time to about 1/2 because my slicer cuts things so FINE!!!
