It was a nice oniony-vegetable soup. Less effort to make than French onion soup. Would make again.

Just come across this recipe. Very easy, very tasty. To be pedantic; spelling: vegatable (vegetable), blits (blitz) and untill (until). Thanks.

Really yummy, I love loads of black pepper in mine. I didn't blend as I prefer soup with chunks!

Great easy recipe, used it a few times now. Left the garlic out on one occasion and it still tasted good :)
