Recipe: White onion, Mustard and Cheddar Soup
This is a really comforting and warming onion soup. The weather is allready starting to turn (Even though it's only ruddy August!)and my need for tasty big bowls of soup with plenty of crusty bread everly increases. Simple, cheap, tasty and filling. Nuf' Said.
White onion, Dijon mustard and cheddar soup (makes 3 bowls- 84p per bowl)
2 large white onions, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp sugar
3 heaped tbsp plain flour
800ml chicken stock
250ml single cream
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
50g finely grated cheddar
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
Salt and pepper
1. Cook the onions, garlic and sugar in butter for 10 minutes on a medium heat. Add flour and stir to coat. Gradually add the chicken stock, and cook for 20 minutes. Put aside and leave to cool.
2. Mix together 50ml cream and the wholegrain mustard. Blend the soup until smooth. Return to the pan with 150ml of the single cream, Dijon mustard, cheddar and cook for 10 minutes or until well mixed and piping hot.
3. Season to taste, and swirl the mustard cream over the soup. Serve with buttered crusty bread.
