Recipe by sugarpea

An outstanding onion soup! A bit rich for regular consumption but perfect for a dinner party or special romantic occasion (as long as you both have it). Quick and easy as well.

My Mom came over for dinner tonight and I made this soup. It is heavenly! I agree it is too rich for everday but I bet I will start making this at least once a month. My mom wants a copy of the recipe too. And I even had to use dried basil because I forgot to pick up fresh. I can just imagine how it would taste with fresh basil!

  1. Knead the butter and flour together with your hands.
  2. In a saucepan cook the onion in the oil over moderate heat stirring, until it softens; add the broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Whisk in the butter mixture in small batches, whisking until the soup thickens; stir in the cream, basil and salt and pepper to taste, and bring the soup just to a boil; remove from heat and serve.
