A great way to enjoy a warm soup on a cold day is by making French onion soup. It is a classic dish that many people love and is very easy to make. Here are some tips to help you prepare it at home.
Order online for pickup or delivery
One of my favorite pastimes is ordering a nice big bowl of french onion soup from a trusted local establishment. The soup is made from scratch and the resulting quality is off the charts. If you’re not in the mood for cooking this week, don’t despair, the good news is you can now order it direct to your door. Just remember to let your server know if you have any food sensitivities. A well-trained waitress will go out of her way to make your meal a memorable one. Afterwards, why not take a stroll down Austin’s most historic street and soak up some of the city’s ambiance while your culinary delight abounds.
Depending on where you are, there’s a myriad of options to choose from. Some of the best bets include Sap’s, which is located on South Congress Avenue, and the aforementioned The Derby. For those on a more budget-friendly splurge, you can order a nice big bowl of the best in town from a local favorite like the Thin Crust Pizza Place.
Top it with a slice of bread
French onion soup is a classic soup that is often served as an appetizer or a starter course. It is rich, creamy, and has a deep, dark broth. The traditional topping for the soup is a slice of baguette, swaddled in cheese.
Although toasted bread is usually included in the soup, you can make the soup without it. If you don’t have any cheesy bread, you can use any type of crusty bread. You can also freeze the leftover soup. After it’s cooled, you can defrost it in the refrigerator. Once it’s defrosted, you can reheat it on the stove.
To start making the soup, you will need an onion, olive oil, and butter. Slice the onion widthwise. Simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes. Add a pinch of salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir the soup frequently. Depending on the cut of the onions, they will cook differently.
Once the onions are caramelized, they can be sliced. They can be stored for up to two weeks in the freezer.
Keep it in the fridge
If you are making French onion soup and would like to freeze it for later, the best way to do so is to make the soup and then freeze it in serving-sized portions. This makes it easier to thaw and use when you need it.
The process of freezing French onion soup is fairly easy. You just need to follow a few simple steps.
First, you need to cook the onions in a large pot. Stir them occasionally to prevent burning. Be sure to remove the lid during the cooking time to avoid the onions sticking to the bottom of the pot.
Next, you need to add stock. There are several options, including vegetable and beef broth. Some people also use Worcestershire sauce to enhance the flavor. For the best results, you should choose a good stock and seasonings.
Once the soup is done, you can divide it into individual servings and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or, you can keep the soup in the freezer for up to three months.
Enjoy it on a chilly day
If you are looking for a cozy and comforting dish to enjoy on a cold day, look no further than French onion soup. It’s easy to make at home and comes with a variety of flavors that will warm your heart.
A classic french onion soup recipe includes a rich beef broth, caramelized onions, and gooey cheese. All the ingredients are pantry staples, and the result is a delicious and satisfying meal.
A good starting point for this dish is a two quart saucepan. You will need at least three pounds of onions.
Once the onions are sliced, saute them in a little butter. Stirring regularly will ensure that they cook evenly. Let the onions caramelize for about 40 minutes.
Then, add garlic and seasonings. Next, add wine. This will deglaze the pan and help bring out the flavor.
If you don’t want to use alcohol, you can just omit it. You can also use a little vinegar.
