Onion soup with sage (4 people)
A bunch of spring onions (about 9 onions)
2-3 garlic cloves
A handful sage leaves
A handful thyme
About 1.5 litre stock (beef, chicken or vegetable)
Finely chop the spring onions, leeks, onions and garlic. Roughly chop the sage and thyme. Give a good knob of butter to a pot and let it melt. Add the herbs to the butter and stir. Now add all the onions and cook at a low to medium heat for about 30 minutes until the onions are soft and golden. Stir occasionally.
Make sure the onions don't catch during cooking. You can add more butter or lower the heat to prevent the onions from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
When the onions are soft and golden, add the stock and leave the soup to cook for about 15-20 minutes.
Season to taste and serve hot.
