Cream of Onion Soup

Hanan Hussein


I love creamy soups, but onion soup as we know it isn't creamy, so I came up with this recipe. It was a hit! So now every time I make it I have to make a big batch because we always go for seconds.

How to Make Cream of Onion Soup


  1. Quarter the onions lengthwise then thinly slice sideways.
    Place the sliced onions and olive oil in a large pot over medium low heat. Stir often till onions are translucent.
  2. Add the flower and stir till all the liquid is absorbed.
    Gradually add the chicken broth stirring well after each addition to prevent any lumps from forming. Add the milk, the salt and pepper and bring to the boil.
    Reduce heat to low and simmer partially covered for 20 - 30 minutes or until onion is tender.
  3. For serving, place some cream in each bowl (about 1/4 cup depending on personal preference) then ladle the soup over the cream, stir and enjoy.
