Today I will be talking about another recipe from The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook; this delicious recipe is called Creamy Onion Soup.
This is my very favorite kind of soup because of how creamy and delicious it is. Today I will give you the easy recipe, but first I am going to tell you a little bit about this soup.
Creamy Onion Soup is a great soup for onion lovers and creamy soup lovers, because in this soup, those two things are the shining stars that make the whole soup fit together. According to the cookbook, this soup is from the scene in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince where Dumbledore brings Harry to the Weasleys’ house in the middle of the night and Mrs. Weasley serves Harry a bowl of hot onion soup.
Creamy Onion Soup
Recipe adapted slightly from The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook.
Yields 4 servings
2 tablespoons butter
2 large onions, cut lengthwise and sliced 1/8-inch thick
4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
2 cups whole milk, divided
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)
1. Heat the butter in a 4-quart pot. Add the onions to the pot and cook over low heat until the onions are golden, about 30 minutes.
2. Add the broth, salt, pepper, and bay leaf; bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat and let it simmer (covered) for 10 minutes.
3. Combine 1/3 cup milk with the flour in a bowl and mix well, beating out the lumps with a whisk. Add this mixture slowly to the soup while stirring constantly.
4. Cook, stirring frequently, until the soup thickens. Add the rest of the milk and the Worcestershire sauce (if using) and heat through, but do not boil.
