Well in case you are like me and just can't get your fill
of onion recipes this one is a doozy for you. With Fall
in the air I'm getting my snuggly sweatshirts lined up for
the chilly nights. You know what's good on a chilly night?
All kinds of piping hot soups and stews. A favorite is a
crock of this ROASTED ONION SOUP served in a carved out
sourdough bread bowl with melted cheese on top! The sweet
caramelized onions with roasted shallots and garlic are a
delish combo for this soup and yet not too overpowering.

Can't you just smell the aroma? Enjoy!

RECIPE: ROASTED ONION SOUP

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

INGREDIENTS:
1/4 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
3 Spanish onions, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced
1/4 cup brandy
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic head, large, cloves separated, peeled and cut in half
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons olive oil (preferably extra-virgin olive oil)
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
3 large shallots, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced

DIRECTIONS:
Set oven rack at the lowest level; preheat to 450 degrees.
Combine onions, shallots, garlic and oil in a large shallow
roasting pan. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring every 5
minutes, or until the onions are golden. Remove from oven and
pour in one-fourth of the chicken stock. Stir liquid in the
pan, scraping the bottom to loosen and dissolve any caramelized
bits. (The liquid will become quite dark.) Transfer the onion
mixture to a soup pot and add brandy, thyme and the remaining
chicken stock. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer,
covered, for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and top
with Parmesan cheese.

Yield: approx 4 Servings

ONION STORAGE TIPS

Store onions in a cool, dry place with good air circulation
and away from bright light and out of any direct sunlight.

Place onions at least one foot away from walls to provide
air movement.

DO NOT store whole onions in plastic bags as lack of air
circulation reduces storage life.

DO NOT store onions with potatoes as potatoes give off
moisture that can cause onions to spoil.
