Thick Onion Soup

A big thanks to landysrock, one of our readers, for this contribution. It sounds perfect for a chilly autumnal eve or a typical British summer’s day.

Got more onions than you can juggle with? Thick onion soup!

  • 75g soya marge
  • 500g onions(finely chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 40g plain flour
  • 600ml veg stock
  • 600ml soya milk
  • 2-3tsp lemon/lime juice
  • Good pinch of allspice
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 carrot(coarsely grated)
  • 4-6 tbs soya cream (thick one if possible)
  • Pepper

Melt the marge on a medium-low heat, add onions and garlic then fry gently for about 15 mins until soft. Stir in the flour and cook for a further minute then raise the heat to medium and gradually add stock. Bring to boil, stirring all the time. Stir in the soya milk and bring to boil again. Season with pepper, stir in the lemon/lime juice, and add the allspice and bay leaf. Reduce heat and simmer for about 25 mins until the onions are tender. Chuck the bay leaf out, add the carrots and cook for 2-3 mins more, then stir in the soya cream and re-heat. Sprinkle a bit of parsley on the top and there you go!
