Many Onion Soup
Cyberfriend and cook extraordinaire, Wolvie, recommended this recipe from Ming Tsai, the renown chef frequently seen on the Food TV network. I increased the quantity (it keeps and reheats wonderfully) and adjusted the ratio of certain ingredients but the essence of the recipe remains the same: a menagerie of onions cooked in a broth that sparkles with flavor. Even if you have your own tried-and-true onion soup recipe you must try this one. Delicious!
Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat. When the oil shimmers, add the onions, leeks, and shallots. SautÚ, stirring, until brown, 20-30 minutes.
Add the scallions, mustard, wine, and Worcestershire sauce, stir, and cook until reduced by 3/4th's, about 10-15 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add the chopped thyme and broth. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until reduced by 1/4th, about 30 minutes. Correct seasons if necessary.
