Intoxicating Onion Soup

Rated as 2.71 out of 5 Stars

"This is a delicious onion soup that uses red wine for liquid - but don't worry, despite its title you'll only be drunk on happiness! This is delicious served with garlic bread. The salt can be reduced, and the wine should have a 0 or 1 sugar code."

This soup was pretty good. We were a little skeptical at first...wine and onions??? We cut it down to two servings, used dried parsley and added half a can of chicken broth. It tasted pretty goo...

It's too strong as written (though it may depend ALOT on which wine you use). I cut it with 2 cups of beef stock (made from oxo cubes) and it was gorgeous.

We did not like it at all. Sorry...

Way too much wine for our tastes as written, bade again with 1 cup of dry Bordeaux, 3 cups of beef stock and 1 cup of water and it was perfect. Love the pure onioniness though!
