A lot of recipes call for cans of stock, bullion cubes, and other barely palatable shortcuts. This recipe raises the bar without having to spend eighteen hours in the kitchen. The first step is a visit to where if you buy their beef and chicken concentrated bases, you will never buy another can of broth. (No, I don't own stock in the company.) If you can obtain sweet onions such as Vidalia, stick with dry white wine. The sweetness in soup like this should come from the carrot, the onions, and the wine - NOT added sugar. (Although there's no accounting for taste...)
