If you love onions this is your perfect recipe! I love onions and I love how easy they are to grown here in Seattle. That’s one crop I never seem to screw up!
Here is the caveat to this recipe. Caramelizing onions can take a while. It’s 1000% worth it, but it still takes time. If you’re looking to take a shortcut, try my caramelized onions in the slowcooker trick! I make these every couple of weeks for this recipe, to cook into eggs, even on sandwiches. A caramelized onion add a a great flavor to so many dishes!
- 5 Large sweet onion- I used Walla Walls’s
- Italian Seasoning, or your favorite herb blend
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
- 1 stick ( 1/2 cup) butter or other cooking fat
- 2 quarts broth- chicken bone broth preferred
- Optional- Parmesan cheese
- Cut of the onions into slices. No need for fancy perfectly, even cutting here. Just slice em up!
- Over low heat, I did between 2-3 on my gas stove, melt the butter then add the onions.
- Salt the onions and add a few shakes of seasoning. About 2 tsp.
- Let the onions do their thing, and get golden brown. This takes around 45min. You want to stir occasionally.
- Once the onions are nice and golden, toss in the arrowroot powder and stir for 5 min.
- Now, add the broth. Simmer over medium heat 20 min.
- While the soup is simmering, shred or flake a small pile of parmesan cheese on a non stick Silpat. Heat the cheese up under the broiler until is melted and flat.
- Pull the cheese rounds out and let cool on a paper towel. They will crisp up while cooling.
- Serve the soup in a bowl with one cheese round on top.
**IF you are starting with finished caramelized onions- melt 2 tbs butter or fat in your pot, and add the onions cook over medium low heat for about 5 min stirring. Add the broth and follow steps 5 from above.
Helpful Equipment- Large heavy bottomed pot or dutch oven, optional slipmat for sheet pans if making Parmesan crisps.
