Food and a give-away!
Today's recipe is Ade's French Onion Soup. It's dead easy to make and it's not pricey. A great lunch for a cold rainy day.
3 medium or 2 large onions, quartered, then cut into thin slices.
1 small leek, finely chopped.
1 tablespoon flour
2 beef stock cubes
Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
salt and pepper
Saute the onions and leek in butter and olive oil until soft and transparent.
Stir in flour and cook for one minute.
Stir in a kettle and a half of boiling water.
Crumble in stock cubes, stir until cubes dissolved.
Add Worcestershire sauce to taste (some like loads, some don't)
Salt and pepper.
Simmer for at least 30 minutes.
Prior to serving, toast one side of bread under grill. Turn over, sprinkle with grated cheese.
When cheese melted and bubbling. Spoon soup into bowls, add the toast to each bowl.
