Onion-Bread Soup

November 2nd, 2017 | main dishes

The winner recipe: My onion-bread soup was the entrance ticket for this year’s Frankfurt book fair. The topic was how to use stale bread instead of throwing it away. This is my recipe for Frankfurt!

Onion-Bread Soup (Recipe for 4 portions)

3 big Spanish onions
Cut in rings/slices
50 g butter (2 TS)
melt in a pot, fry the onions in it for 3-4 minutes until soft
1 TS brown (vanilla) sugar
add and let caramelize
Salt, pepper
season
150 ml white wine
deglaze with wine
600 ml strong meat stock (best with home made stock)
add and simmer genlty for 5 – 10 minutes
Tabasco Chipotle Sauce
season to taste (some drops).
75 g butter (3 TS)
melt in a pan,
3 garlic cloves
peel and crush a bit,
5 half slices of stale bread each plate
Roast garlic and bread in the butter until golden brown.
1 - 2 spring onions, cut into rings
4 TS grated chees (Greyezer or mountain cheese)
lace the bread into plates or soup cups, pour the Onion Soup on top of the roasted bread and serve garnished with spring onions and cheese.

And so does the captain's wife ...

It is no must to use vanilla sugar for this recipe. I personally put every scraped out vanilla pod into a tin wit brown sugar which then becomes vanilla sugar with a wonderful flavour. This touch of vanilla… is perfect to flavour many different dishes …

Finally asparagus again!

It’s about time. Two weeks later than usual, the asparagus harvest finally starts in Northern Germany. Basically I do not buy asparagus and strawberries out of season, and then only from the region. Due to the cold winter and the moist, no, wet autumn, our anticipation of the first asparagus meal of the year could thus increase by another 14 days. Here we go!
