Check out the giant wooden spoon I picked up this summer in China town when we visited my sister.
Why not! We often put a twist into our favourite recipes to make them our own...so why, indeed, had I never thought to make any other soup, french onion style?
The soup was just chopped vegetables that I had in the fridge (onions, celery, carrots), some corn I had cut off a cob and put in the freezer, and the broth was cooked over a campfire this past summer. Throw in some dried thyme and sage from the garden, a couple of bay leaves, a few drops of tabasco, some white wine, and it is actually very similar to onion soup.
