Soups can be so simple to make. This one is super-simple: and has only 4 ingredients (+ salt and pepper).<br><br><img alt="" src="http://vegetarianvie.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/SPICY-FRIED-ONION-SOUP-300x205.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
INGREDIENTS<br><br>
4 white onions<br><br>
2 tsps chilli flavoured olive oil<br><br>
4 tsps Vecon vegetable stock paste (you can use any vegetable stock paste or even dried stock cubes, if you don't have Vecon)<br><br>
2 tsps cornflour<br><br>
salt and pepper, to taste.<br><br>
METHOD<br><br>
1. Peel all onions. Chop 2 finely, and slice the other two into thin rings.<br><br>
2. Heat oil in a frying pan until rippling . Turn down slightly and add onions. Cook until soft and starting to brown.<br><br>
3. Meanwhile bring 6 cups of water to the boil in a large pan. Add vegetable stock and stir until melted.<br><br>
4. Add cooked onions, bring to the boil, and turn down to a simmer. Add salt and pepper to taste.<br><br>
5. Simmer for 10-15 minutes (you can simmer for longer if you want a stronger onion flavour).<br><br>
6. Mix cornflour in a small bowl with a small amount of water until liquified. Add to soup and stir until soup thickens.<br><br>
7. Serve with wholemeal bread rolls.

Hmmm, never heard of or know where to find chili flavored olive oil. I might have to try the soup without or maybe add a little bit of hot curry for some flavor. I'll do a 1/2 batch and see how it turns out.

Just add a little chilli powder with the vegetable stock, or chop a chilli finely and fry with the onions (the second option is better because it gives the onions a chilli flavour rather than giving all of the soup a chilli flavour).<br><br>
Hope it goes well - I'm cooking it again tomorrow at lunchtime for my parents.

Soup was delicious if a bit spicy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I ended up putting 2 hot peppers in with the onion and added a tablespoon or so of hot pepper sauce.

That might explain the spicyness <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Glad you enjoyed it though.
