Five Onion Soup

Submitted by: BTVMADS

Introduction

This is a delicious way to enjoy the range of flavors in onions, and a refreshing departure from the usual French Onion or Potato Leek soups. This has a creamy, rich consistency without the cream!

Ingredients

    3 tbsp. butter
    The Five Onions:
    ~1 leek, white and pale green parts only, chopped
    ~1 yellow onion, chopped
    ~1 red onion, chopped
    ~3 scallions, chopped
    ~2 shallots, small dice
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/3 cup dry sherry
    4-5 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
    1 medium (10 oz) russet potato, peeled
    Salt and pepper as desired

    Optional garnish: croutons and chives (not included in nutrition information)

    I STRONGLY SUGGEST WEARING GOGGLES TO CHOP THE VEGGIES. Nobody can handle that much onion without bawling, but a pair of goggle will protect even the most sensitive peepers!

Directions

Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat. Add all of the five onions and garlic, but not the potato. Add a sprinkling of salt, and saute until translucent. This should take about 8 minutes (which feels like forever, but be patient with it.... Leeks burn easily over high heat, and taste gross when they do).

Pour in the sherry and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add the potato and broth and bring to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the potato is falling-apart tender.

Puree the soup with a stick blender (or in a regular blender in smaller batches), then season with salt and pepper.

Serve piping hot with crusty garlic bread or topped with your favorite croutons. Enjoy!

Serves 6.
