This low calorie onion soup recipe is easy to make and is full of flavour.
Onion Soup has always been a personal favourite of mine and this recipe fits the bill well.
Chopping the onions is a bit of a chore but I find a mandolin style slicer with vertical knives does the trick without provoking too many tears.
The list of ingredients is just about as short as any on this site as well.
Try it, I'm sure you will like it as much as we do.
With simple recipes like this one the quality of the ingredients is even more important than usual.
Gently caramelising the onion brings out the flavour but it really helps if the onions are full of flavour to start with.
To make 2 servings:

Using a heavy based pan, fry the chopped onions and the garlic in the olive oil until the onion is nicely browned but not burnt. The idea is to caramelise the onions without letting them become crisp.
This gives the soup its brown colour and concentrates the flavour of the onions.
Add the stock and bring back to the boil, stirring gently. You can let the soup simmer for a while or serve it immediately
Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve hot.
We like to serve this with crispy croutons, rough cubes of bread crisped in the oven, delicious.
