Top Review by Chef Edlear

Oh my, this was tasty and easy. I multiplied this by 10 and it was a snap to pull together. I didn't have any sweet onions on hand, so spent the time caramelizing the yellow onions that I did have. I didn't need to add any sweeteners to them, the natural juices of the caramelized onion were enough. I used the vegetarian worcestershire sauce, and all sharp cheddar. I threw in a good sized handful of grated parmesan cheese at the end. After I pureed with the immersion blender, I added in a few cups of 1/4 inch diced caramelized onions for textural interest. We served this with our homemade rye croutons and chopped Italian parsley. I'll definately make this again, thanks!
