Top Chef Stephanie Izard's Sweet Onion Soup

Are you a fan of Bravo’s Top Chef? Well, I am a big fan of the show and Top Chef Chicago Winner Chef Stephanie Izard so I could not pass up an opportunity to interview her.

But before I give you the link to the video, I begged asked if she would share a recipe with The Family Kitchen and so I present to you: Sweet Onion Soup….

I find that there is nothing more comforting in wintertime than a heart-warming soup and this one will fit the bill.

Stephanie Izard recipe – Sweet Onion Soup (serves 6)
2 sweet onions, peeled, cut in half & sliced thin
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup sparkling white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup water
Salt to taste

Combine sweet onions and olive oil in a cold pot. Put over low heat and let the onions sweat. Salt slightly to prevent onions from caramelizing. Stir occasionally. When the onions have released most of their juices (about 2 hours later) add the sparkling white wine and cook another hour. When all the alcohol is cooked off, remove from heat and blend in a blender and then strain through a fine sieve. Whisk in cream & water, add more salt to taste.
Either chill or serve hot.
