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!!
