This recipe for beer onion soup is delicious at lunch or as a starter. The beer gives a mild sweet flavor with a slight bitterness to this soup, which combines wonderfully with the onions.
Today we start with the beer week with a couple of delicious recipes using beer as ingredient. Because it's October and our German neighbors are having their festivals known as the October Bierfeste, a phenomenon that's also upcoming in the Netherlands (at least in the part where I live).
Now I personally don't like to drink beer. But given the many number of beer fans I'm in the minority. What I do love though is cooking with beer. Because cooking with beer can give a particular flavor to a dish or some extra airiness, making it truly a great addition. Therefor the choice for a week of cooking with beer. I have made some delicious dishes and I hope that it will also apply to you. And if you've got some tips or ideas for a theme week in the future, let me know, because I'm always looking for inspiration.
- you use beer as a seasoning the onions should play the lead in this dish so make sure you choose a light beer and not a too bitter one. Taste before serving and should it seem a bit bitter, add some sugar to decrease.
- you fry the onion for a moment, the sweet flavors will enhance.
- you add flour the soup will bind slightly. Bake the flour though for a while, otherwise you get a raw flour flavor.
It's a good taste!
