    Notes

    • Note 1 if you haven't tried dried onion in your cooking, you need to right away! It brings such great flavour to recipes and saves you from cutting a whole onion and crying throughout! I don't mind most food preparation, but cutting onions and peeling their skin has never been my favourite kitchen task. Dried onion is the perfect substitute and won't compromise flavour. 
    • Note 2 wait a little bit for the soup to cool before blending it. It is much smoother that way and perfect for dunking. 
    • Note 3 I use a flat kitchen utensil like a scraper with slots to help me flip, you could also use kitchen tongs.
