  • I just made this soup and after reading the other comments, I left out the sugar. I also added a pinch of chilli pepper as we like spicy things. Would be perfect for a cold winters evening. - 9/10/12

  • I used a slightly different mix of onions, but the results were still quite good. I also pureed the blend before serving it. I might try it without the sugar next time: the caramelized onions seem sweet enough. - 2/17/12

  • This was much sweeter than a traditional french onion soup. I would leave out the sugar next time, it would be sweet enough without it. I had to use a little more olive oil than it called for to brown the onions, and it took longer to brown them than ten minutes b/c it is a lot of onion! - 10/21/10
