Although most of the health properties that Diaeta Way promotes in onions are cooked out of this recipe, it is still delicious and has great fiber. If you wanted a twist and wanted to add some of the health of the onion back into the soup, chop a raw onion and place at the bottom of your soup bowl and ladle this hot soup over the chopped raw onions.
- 4 large Spanish Onions, halved and sliced in thin slices
- 3 Tablespoons grass fed butter or extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 3 bay leaves
- ¼ cup brandy
- ¼ cup red wine
- 10 cups of beef broth
- 4 carrots cut into ½ inch piece
In a large pot melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and cover and cook until softened, stirring occasionally about 15 minutes. Uncover and allow to cook until caramelized, approximately 30 minutes more. Add brandy and red wine and allow to slow cook another 10 minutes. Add carrots and stock and cook another 20 minutes. This will keep for one week.
