I lucked out – my daughter loves onions. In fact it is her second most requested soup besides miso.
The onion family is large and ranges in pungency and taste from delicate scallions to garlic’s bold presence. The onion family is great for many health issues from heart disease, to clearing phlegm from allergies and colds to boosting the digestive system.
This recipes makes excellent use of several types of onions and is quite simple to vary. In colder months, I may use beef broth for a richer base. It’s also lovely with whole pearl onions added in for more variety and flavor. Use with the cream or opt out if you have a lot of mucus and congestion.
