      Very nice creamy soup and extremely easy to make.
      I admit to 2 additions, I added a little fresh minced garlic; and some fresh thyme, just because I love thyme with onions.

      I had to roast some onions for another dish that day, so I did use 1/2 raw onions and 1/2 roasted. It gave it a great flavor. However, it would of been fine without the added roasted onions.

      As suggested I used light cream and everything else was exactly as written. The garlic was my taste and I did sample the soup prior to adding the thyme and it was wonderful as is. I just like the bit of added flavor (personal preference).

      What a nice light, but tasty soup. Thx Parsley!!

      I had some serious doubts about this recipe at first, but they were completely dispelled once I took my first spoonful! Creamy and extremely flavorful. I even used low fat milk and about 1 tablespoon butter! (I also substituted bouquet garni herbs for the basil, which I ran out of.) The sweet onions added to the flavor, and the broth, while thick, did not have that floury taste that sometimes comes through. I liked this so much I ate the leftovers for breakfast at work the next day:) Definitely deserves to be made again, and it was a cinch to make too. Thanks!
