Five Onion SoupSubmitted by: BTVMADS
IntroductionThis 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! 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.

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!
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!
