A true winter warmer! The cooking process develops a lovely sweetness to the onions that makes this soup very more-ish.

Suitable for maintenance and levels 1 and 2

Most people don’t know but onions are one of the best sources of calcium other than dairy. They also have properties that are antiviral, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. Not everyone digests raw onions well and are often best eaten cooked.
