.: Recipe : French Onion Soup :.

While my very creative cousin, Tammie, is good at making cute lil bawang men and women, her not-so-creative-cousin (that would be me) would go into Martha Stewart mode and explain to you what you could make from this lovely bawangs (onions).

French Onion Soup (Simple Version)

Heat a dollop of butter into a frying pan and brown the thinly sliced onions under low to medium heat. Now the onions will firstly 'sweat', then it will slowly brown. The whole pan will be brownish at the sides, but not to worry, that's where the good taste is!

Brown the onions for about 25 - 30 minutes (but please make sure you do not burn it - hence, it's important for you to constantly stir it and ensure that the heat is not too high). Add salt and sugar to taste.

Add about a liter plus of chicken stock (or you could use beef stock - depending on your liking) and bring it to boil. When boiling, slow down the fire for it to simmer. Add a dash of wine or brandy (I used daddy's brandy *shuuuuu*) if you like.

Serve in bowl while hot with warm bread.

Such a simple, but delectable meal!
