The One with French Onion Soup

Hola Amigos !!!
                Today's menu is French Onion Soup !! It is quick ,easy and very delicious  soup. It is perfect starter for this winter . This is one of my Hubby's favourite starter. I wish to tell you that I have created a Facebook page for my blog. Do like my page here.

This is what you need :

Onions (Medium) - 3
Butter - 2 tbsp
Plain Flour - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Vegetable Stock - 500 ml
Salt - to taste
Pepper - to taste

This is how you do :

1. In a pan add butter and after it starts melting add onions and fry them till they become soft and turn golden brown.
2. Now add sugar and mix them well. After few minutes the whole mixture will start turning light brown.
3.Add plain flour and after a quick mix add vegetable stock and salt and simmer flame for 10 -15 mins.
4. When the soup starts to thicken , turn off the flame and add salt and pepper as required.

Serve it hot with toasted bread or baguette :)!!!!

I used ready made vegetable stock blocks for this soup but it can also be done with vegetable stock from boiled vegetables and in that case add some dried oregano or basil to this stock.
