Onion-Bread Soup

November 2nd, 2017 | main dishes

The winner recipe: My onion-bread soup was the entrance ticket for this year’s Frankfurt book fair. The topic was how to use stale bread instead of throwing it away. This is my recipe for Frankfurt!

Onion-Bread Soup (Recipe for 4 portions)

3 big Spanish onions
Cut in rings/slices
50 g butter (2 TS)
melt in a pot, fry the onions in it for 3-4 minutes until soft
1 TS brown (vanilla) sugar
add and let caramelize
Salt, pepper
season
150 ml white wine
deglaze with wine
600 ml strong meat stock (best with home made stock)
add and simmer genlty for 5 – 10 minutes
Tabasco Chipotle Sauce
season to taste (some drops).
75 g butter (3 TS)
melt in a pan,
3 garlic cloves
peel and crush a bit,
5 half slices of stale bread each plate
Roast garlic and bread in the butter until golden brown.
1 - 2 spring onions, cut into rings
4 TS grated chees (Greyezer or mountain cheese)
lace the bread into plates or soup cups, pour the Onion Soup on top of the roasted bread and serve garnished with spring onions and cheese.

And so does the captain's wife ...

It is no must to use vanilla sugar for this recipe. I personally put every scraped out vanilla pod into a tin wit brown sugar which then becomes vanilla sugar with a wonderful flavour. This touch of vanilla… is perfect to flavour many different dishes …

Deep-fried eggs on spinach

For those who still did not have enough eggs on this sunny Easter weekend… Crispy crumbed with almonds and inside as soft as butter. With fresh spinach leaves and cress. The good, old classic “spinach with egg” tastes so good – and without “blubb”.

Venison steak with chilli and blackberry sauce

After collecting blueberries and mushrooms on my hikes over the past few weeks, now the blackberries are ripe. They’re plentiful this year, and they’re sun-kissed and sugar-sweet. I processed my harvest into a very fine sauce for the venison steak. Chilli, ginger, red and port wine and the fruity sweetness of blackberries – the sauce is really phantastic…
