How do you cook red or yellow onions?

Stir fries, stew, curries and salads?

Don’t use onions for the usual boring recipes with onions and garlic because onions could offer more tasty meal than that!

Onions are on of the most natural antibiotic food besides garlic and are excellent source to prevent arthritis, flu and colds.

Try adding onions into your soup recipes for a change.

This French Onion Soup turned out similar to creamy mushroom soup except for the fragrant onion flavor.

It is actually a mixture of raw onions caramelized with beef stock and thicken the soup with flour to form a creamy texture.

I had never tried French Onion Soup as this type of soup is usually serve in Western restaurant along with the main course dish.

I had long wanted to try this wonderful tasty soup which is healthy and nutritious.

Initially, I thought that the strong onion odor would have induce in the soup but it turned out fragrant and delicious, quite the opposite.

It doesn’t have the strong awful onion flavor but a little sweet and fragrant. 

I love the creamy texture that blended well with the beef stock and the bay leaf.

You should try this onion soup recipe if you need to warm up your tummy!
