I love the flavor of caramelized onions. It’s deep, sweet and tasty! These onions are happy…they’ve been doused with some port wine! The port intensifies the flavors even more. I think I made up this potato soup just to have some kind of a stage for the onions! Don’t get me wrong, the soup is delicious, but I think the onions make it really special. Experiment with your favorites. If you don’t like onions, try topping this soup with shredded sharp cheddar cheese, a pesto of fresh herbs or crumbled bits of bacon. Serve this with a hearty bread or some biscuits and it’s a great winter meal.
Potato Soup with Caramelized Tipsy Onions
salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot over medium heat, sauté the one chopped onion, celery and herbs in 1 T. of the olive oil being very careful not to get them brown. Once the onions are soft, add the garlic and continue cooking for a minute.
- If you do not have port wine, try using sherry, red wine or even white wine. The point is, just get those onions tipsy!
This sounds great! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much Sheri! I’m so glad you think so! :D
Laurie, Thank you so very much for your kind compliments. I’m thrilled (jumping up and down cheering, to be honest) that you will be sharing this on your wall. You’ve made my day. I hope you make the soup and love it as much as I do!
This sounds spectacular! I love caramelized onions but have never added port wine to them.. Can’t wait to try this! I am sharing this recipe on our, The Inspired Plate FB wall.
