Red Onion Soup

Red Onion Soup

The red onion soup is inspired by the traditional first course of French cuisine: the soup à l’oignon , which is served after being au gratin in the oven with grated cheese and slices of bread. A soup suitable for the winter period, therefore, when you need a warm and enveloping cuddle to refresh yourself. The variant that we propose here is lighter and more genuine, it is prepared with red onions, which have a sweet and delicate taste.
