Onion soup with a twist

Helloooo :)
This time I thought to share with you a little recipe for impressive results - the onion soup.
I tried to follow the French recipe so here are the ingredients I used:


  • 1 kilo onion 
  • 1,5l water but it would be better to use chicken stock 
  • fresh black pepper 
  • butter  - 2 tea spoons 
  • salt 

So I guess the most difficult part is to cut the onion, after cutting 2 of them, I almost gave up so I remembered I have this little vegetable chopper in my kitchen: 


Then I fried the onion only a bit in the butter, then added the water/stock, spices, and let it boil for abut one hour. 
When it got a more jelly-like texture, I added again some fresh pepper ;) 

For serving, I wanted to keep it more diet friendly so instead of the French recipe which calls for croutons, I decided to replace them with fried mushrooms et voila: 


It is delicious and as you can see very easy to make. 
Let me know your opinions. 

Kiss, kisses,
