i love fall because it puts me in a cooking mood. admittedly, i've been cooking a lot more now that i've (tried) to commit myself to eating as little processed food as i can. seriously, it's hard yo. try to ingest less toxins, and you end up having to make everything from scratch because you can't be sure that what you're eating is really food. and with the cooler weather, soups are big for me. i love soups. i'm going to share a recipe for one of my favorite soups. and most of the ingredients have magical benefits as well. so not only are you getting the amazing real food benefits but you get magical benefits too.
Onion Protection Soup
6 tbl butter
4-6 large white onion (protection)
3 tbl brown sugar
2 tbl flour (prosperity)
4 c beef stock
fresh ground pepper (grounding)
1/4 c rum
1c grated mozzarella or provolone cheese
melt the butter in a large sauce pan, add the chopped onion and sugar, cook over medium heat until the onions are caramelized. remove from heat and the flour and slowly add the beef stock, stirring the entire time. bring to a boil, add salt, pepper, and rum. simmer for 20min, then ladle into bowls, top with cheese.
serve with home made croutons drizzled with butter when ever you feel you need a little more protection.
