Onion Soup

Onion SoupOnion soup is a great winter food, it’s rich, filling and extremely tasty. I like to serve my onion soup alongside a thick slice of freshly toasted bread and a generous helping of cheese. Onion soup can take a while to make so I make big batched which I can store in containers in my freezer, it lasts for ages and when I feel like I need a big warm soup, I can simply defrost and reheat. Ready in no time!
