Cream of Onion Soup

July 14, 2011

I do not make many hot soups in the summer but when I am craving Soupe a l’Oignon Gratinee this super fast soup will set me straight in about 30 minutes (no complaints from me).  I went to a friend’s house tonight for a “Friendly French Dinner” where each of us will bring a course to serve the total amount of people attending.  The person that hosts the dinner can choose which country we will celebrate.  The friends and food were all delicious and a good time was had by all.  A perfect celebration for Bastille Day.

Cream of Onion Soup


  • 6 Onions (chopped)
  • 1 T. Butter
  • 2 C. Milk
  • 1 C. Broth
  • 1 T. Flour
  • 1 T. Lemon Juice
  • 2 T. Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 4 Slices French Bread
  • Handful of Chives (snipped for garnish)


  1. Saute the onions in butter for about 5-10 minutes
  2. Add the milk, flour, broth, lemon juice and salt and pepper and simmer for 8-10 minutes
  3. Use an immersion blender and puree (optional, may be served as is)
  4. Stir in the Parmesan Cheese and blend well
  5. Put a slice of bread in the bottom of a warmed bowl and ladle the soup over the bread
  6. Garnish with the chives

(Serves 4-6) (Actually served 8 with this recipe as we had many courses)

    Looks good and also since it doesn’t cook long, still won’t heat up the kitchen!
