Do you like raw onion? If not, try to make an onion purée and then put it in your meal. I decided to use a hearty vegetable soup. The onion mix did not only make it much more healthy, but also tasted awesome!
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
- 1 organic onion
- 2 organic garlic cloves
- olive oil
- 3 organic leeks
- 1 organic sweet potato
- 1 organic Savoie cabbage
- 1 organic celeriac
- 2 cubes of organic onion broth
- 1 cup of organic yellow split peas
- 12 cups of water
- 1 tbsp. (15ml) of turmeric
- salt and pepper
- To start, prepare you onions like in my carrot and onion salad. Thinly slice them, put them on a plate and cover with a a bit of olive oil and salt. Set aside for 15 minutes.
- In the meantime, take a big pot and heat a bit of oil. Add in your vegetables and cook them for 5 minutes. Stir in your peas, your onion broth cubes, the turmeric and some pepper. Gradually add you water one cup at the time and scrub the juices. It will build a nice tasty broth.
- Cook the soup for about 20 minutes or until your vegetables are cooked.
- While it’s cooking, put your onions in a blender with the oil and the garlic. Purée until you get a smooth texture.
- When your soup is cooked, blend with a hand blender. If you prefer to skip this step, its a question of taste if you prefer to keep it in pieces. Adjust the seasoning with the salt and the pepper.
- Serve the soup in your bowls and put about 1 Tbsp (15ml) or more of your onion purée. The amount is a question of taste.
As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:
“I’m not great at cooking but your recipes are easy to follow and taste great. My family loves them (and I don’t need to panic if my little boy has another tantrum after school) – thank you”
“Divine tastes like heaven!”
“This looks really good, the only changes I would make is that I would avoid yellow split peas as they tend to be very starchy and difficult to digest, personally I’d go for green split peas for this recipe Alternatively, if one can’t get hold of any green split peas you could also use red lentils.”
“I didn’t think it would be good, but it is!”
“Love it, love you!”
And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
