Here’s a great tomato-onion soup dish I made this afternoon after having a wonderful similar soup last week at Biba’s Ristorante in Sacramento! This takes some time but doesn’t require constant attention – ideal for a lazy afternoon where you might be reading or working on other things as well!
Try serving it with a piece or two of cheese toast! And, like great pot roast, this soup is even better warmed up the next day! It’s truly a treat and much more fun and tasty than just onion soup.
- 5 yellow onions, sliced
- 1 can diced tomatoes – 28 oz (I prefer Muir Glen organic)
- 1 qt vegetable broth
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- Salt, pepper to taste
- In large pot heat olive oil and add onions. Medium heat.
- After 10 minutes stir, turn heat to low and cover for 20 minutes. Onions should be beginning to carmelize.
- Uncover and sir periodically. About 40-45 minutes total. 4, Add diced tomatoes and vegetable broth. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30-40 minutes before serving.
