If you are an onion-lover such as my family is, I suggest to try this soup! I also suggest to make this a day in advance, the flavors intensify quite a lot! I use 8 large onions for this recipe, one more won't hurt, also the onions must be caramalized for this soup, just softening will not do! You can add in some dry white wine if desired.
