Description

Cold rainy days call for a hot soup for dinner in order to warm you up from the inside out. This recipe for onion soup should do just the trick. Slow cooked onions and leeks are the base of this savory soup. Seasoned with sage and garlic, broth is then added and simmered. Topped with toasted bread and cheese, the soup is then broiled in oven-proof bowls until the cheese is melty and golden. Top with a drop of worcestershire sauce and a sage leaf and serve.

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • extra-virgin olive oil (Drizzle of)
  • 1 bunch sage (+ extra for garnish)

  • 300 grams leeks (finely sliced, optional)
  • chicken stock (1 lt., If using leeks, add a little extra)
  • bread (Baguette, 2–3 slices per person)
  • cheddar cheese (Freshly grated)
  • worchestershire
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
