Healthy Onion Soup

Healthy Onion Soup

A smooth flavorsome soup that's great after a gigging session in the garden.

Serve 4 to 6

Preparation time: 30-40 minutes
Cooking time: 30-40 minutes



  • 4 tbsp butter

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 3 large onions, finely sliced

  • 2 tbsp plain flour

  • 1.2L (2 pints) vegetable stock

  • Salt and black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp ground mace

  • 250ml (9 fl oz) milk

  • Lemon juice to taste


  1. Heat the butter and oil together in a large pan, add the onions and cook over a moderate heat for about 20 minutes, until well browned. It is important to brown and not burn the onions, and to achieve a good rich chestnut-brown color, or the soup will be insipid.

  2. Stir in the flour, then cook for 2 to 3 minutes until well browned before gradually stirring in the stock.

  3. Bring to the boil, add the seasoning, cover and cook for 30 to 40 minutes.

  4. Stir in the milk then season the soup to taste, adding a little lemon juice. Reheat gently and serve with crusty bread and strong cheese.
