Edinburgh Evening News 47 - White Onion Velouté with Onion Bhaji
Soup is a wonderful starter for a dinner party as it can be prepared in advance.
This leaves you more time to spend with your guests and less time stressing in the kitchen! It also makes a substantial stand-alone lunch.
Many think of soup as a simple dish but with a few wee tweaks and additions a humble bowl of soup can be transformed into an elegant and enticing course.
A velouté is a soup which is thickened with butter and cream. The result is luxuriously silky. Because of the richness from the cream and butter it is a good idea to use one simple flavour.
This week I am sharing my own recipe for white onion velouté with onion bhaji. The subtle flavour of the gently sweated onions marries perfectly with the rich and creamy base.
