Creamy Onion Soup (not a French onion soup)

I really like this soup because it it lighter than the traditional french onion soup, and freezes well. It is very cheap to make, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.

Serving : 6

Preparation: 10 minutes

Baking : 60 minutes


1.5lb onions (yellow, the cheapest ones), chopped. I like to have rings and small parts)
2 tbsp butter
6 tbsp flour
6 cups water
2 egg yolks
4 tbsp heavy cream
dried parsley or chives (optional) + salt and pepper

  1. Melt the butter, and add the onion, and saute for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the flour and mix well.
  3. Add the water and bring to a boil.
  4. Add salt, and let it simmer for 45 minutes on medium.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the egg yolks and cream (and parsley or chive finely chopped if you want).
  6. After 45 minutes turn off the heat, and just before serving, add the cream mixture and mix well.
  7. Super easy, and cheap. Just serve it with bread or with toasts.
  8. If you don’t add the cream mixture, you can freeze it. Just add it when you’ll use it.
