Roasted Onion-Garlic Soup

Ingredients:

  • 3 Spanish onions - cut in 1/2 lengthwise then thinly sliced
  • 3 large shallots - cut in half
  • 1 large head garlic - cloves separated - peeled and cut in half
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme - or 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Instructions:

Set oven rack at lowest level, preheat to 450 degrees.

Combine onions, shallots, garlic and oil in large shallow roasting pan.

Roast for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, or until onions are golden brown.

Remove from onion and pour in 1 cup of chicken broth. Stir liquid in pan, scraping the bottom to loosen and dissolve caramelized bits.

Transfer the onion mixture to a soup pot and add brandy, thyme and remaining broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve topped with parmesan and perhaps some toasted french bread
