spring onion soup – this is again one of those easy soup recipes. when i make soups at home, we generally prefer pureed and slightly thick soups rather than thin clear soups.
here in this soup, apart from spring onions i have used one potato to thicken the soup. the soup is again made with minimal ingredients so as to bring out the best of spring onions.
this spring onion soup can be served as a starter or as a side dish. you can also serve the soup with some french loaf or baguette or even a pasta.
