Nourishing Onion Soup from Dr. Lindeque’s Kitchen

With winter’s chill in the air, this onion soup graces our table with warmth and abundant vitamin C. Most vitamin C supplements tend to be a tad acidic, but this soup provides a gentle, non-acidic source that your body will thank you for.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 500 grams of spring onions or white onions.
  • 4 cups of distilled or purified water.
  • A pinch of salt.
  • 1 tsp of vegetable stock.

Now, let’s create some kitchen magic:

  1. Begin by chopping those lovely onions or, if you prefer a smoother texture, give them a quick blend. Combine them with 4 cups of pure, distilled water.
  2. Bring the mix to a gentle boil and then let it simmer until the onions turn beautifully transparent.
  3. After simmering, strain the mixture to preserve the precious liquid.
  4. If needed, add a bit more water to reach your preferred consistency, but don’t overdo it; aim for not more than one liter.

Dr. Lindeque’s onion soup is more than a recipe; it’s a soothing, heartfelt tradition that nourishes body and soul. Warm up your winter with this vitamin C-rich delight.
