Caramelised Onion Soup & Onion Ice Cubes

Caramelised Onion Soup & Onion Ice Cubes

Caramelised Onion Soup has to be my favourite soup, it is so simple but so rich in flavour, this version is based on a very popular Ivy Dish that I made by the bucket load during my time there.

The Onion Cubes are an excellent addition to so many dishes, they will feature in a few recipes on The Rabbit Food Blog. You will need a Silicone Ice Cube Tray, a Slow Cooker or Cast Iron pan with lid such as a Le Creuset.
