This onion soup my mother used as a base for her Vranameer Chicken for many years. She, of course, didn’t use a Thermomix®, so I’ve just adapted it for a simple, tasty, filling soup, perfect to eat as a soup, or as the basis for a casserole.
French Onion Soup Thermomix® Recipe
My mother used this as a base for casserole dishes for many years. I've just adapted her recipe for the Thermomix®. My husband and I have an ongoing argument about this soup. I think sweating the onion in the Thermomix® is fine, but he thinks the first steps should be done on a frying pan. It's a personal flavour preference.
Recipe type: Soup
- 25g butter
- 500g onion (about 3)
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 garlic cloves, sliced
- 125ml white wine
- 500g vegetable, chicken or beef stock & water mixed depending on the stock you use.
- salt & pepper to season
- Place the butter in the Thermomix® bowl and add 500g onions, halved.
- Mix at speed 5 for 5 seconds till they're chopped, and put on speed 2/100C to sweat the onions for 4 minutes. (If you're doing this step on the stove, fry until the onions are translucent but watch that they don't burn. Add the sugar and leave to caramalise, about 5 minutes, but keep an eye on it.)
- Add the sugar, and cook for 10 minutes, speed 2, 100C
- Add the garlic, wine and stock and cook for 15 minutes, speed 2, Varoma.
- Taste and season, and serve with fresh bread (although again here, my husband prefers it kept in the fridge for 24 hours, and then heated and served. I like it as is.)
