Onions! (whichever variety you like best! Red, white, leeks, shallots, literally anything from the onion family. And use the equivalent of about 2/3 large onions per person)
1/2 pint beef stock per person
Salt and black pepper
Dried mixed herbs
1. Chop the onions and fry them in 1 tbsp of oil until they are golden. (For an even yummier soup add a small knob of butter and leave them to cook on a low heat for about 40mins, if you have the time!)
2. Pour in the beef stock and stir.
3. Season with salf and pepper and add 1 tsp of the mixed herbs.
4. Leave to simmer for about 10-20mins
Rather than serving this with bread (as is traditional with soup) try having some cheese on toast with it!!
