Spring Onion Soup

I've been exploring lots of new recipes lately, and I figured as I hit on a few winners, I'd share them with y'all. Here's my latest success...

Spring Onion Soup Recipe


2 cups chopped green onions
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cans of beef broth
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
slices of French bread
cloves of garlic
Parmesan cheese

Blanch the green onions. (Boil water, dunk them in for just a minute, then pop them into ice water to cool). Drain and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Heat the butter and oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the diced onion until golden - about 8 minutes. Add the beef broth, bring to a simmer, and then cook for 20 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, salt, pepper and remaining butter.

Rub bread slices with garlic cloves, place on a baking sheet, and toast in the oven for two minutes. Top each toast with cheese and bake until the cheese melts and the tops are golden - about four more minutes.

Add the green onions to the warm soup, pour into bowls, and then top with a cheese toast.
