Onion soup with mushroom and bacon

Made this for dinner - waiting for my own onions (still a long time away!)


Chop a handful of big onions up and whack into a pot with a bit of oil

Add a couple of big pinches of salt and pepper

Add a few big handfuls of chopped mushrooms

Add sage to taste

Smoosh some garlic cloves with the side of your knife and add to the pot

Cook on medium with lid on for about 30 mins until onions are deep brown

Add chicken stock (I couldn't make my own because I didn't have enough bones so I used stock paste)

Add a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce


Mmmm... amazing :-) Pic coming another time.

You left out the bacon Daniel lol. Imagine it goes it with the onion??

Sounds tasty and easy - I have a new tiny sage plant that I could raid to achieve this one.

Ah, home-cooked though, just not enough space to grow beans for drying :-(

Ooh, home-grown beans sounds great! I have broadbeans in the garden which haven't germinated yet... I can't wait until I can use some of them!

Sounds tasty! I use either home-cooked Lima Beans or Chick Peas and the cooking water as an all-purpose stock.
