Microwave Onion Soup Recipe

This delightful soup recipe only needs a microwave, and creates a delicious onion soup with chicken broth, celery, and carrots.

Ingredients:
1 medium onion
1/2 carrot
3" celery stalk
2 cups chicken broth
1 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic
1/8 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp pepper

Start by cutting the onion into rings, then slicing these into long strips. Here's an image of what the onion should look like:

Use a peeler on the carrot to get the same effect. Cut the celery into long strips as well. Put all into a microwaveable bowl. Add in the chicken broth. Melt the butter, and pour that over it all. Squish the garlic, chop it finely, and sprinkle that in as well. Stir in the ginger and pepper.


Microwave for 4 minutes on high. Let it sit for two minutes when it comes out to let the vegetables soften further.

I enjoy this soup a great deal. It's fairly easy to make, as long as you have those few fresh items in your fridge, and it's quite warm and filling.

This makes a full dinner for me. If I'm having it with something else, then I only eat half of the soup. So this could be one or two servings for you. The numbers given are for eating the entire bowl.

It's a good idea to look at the labels for the chicken stock you use. While the carb counts shouldn't vary wildly, they do have incredibly large ranges in sodium. You probably want to look for the lower sodium variety; most people could use far less salt in their diet than they ingest.

This dish ends up being on the sweet side because of the butter. You can easily cut back on the amount of butter used to make the dish less sweet, depending on your preferences.

I would love to hear your feedback on this recipe and any recipe in my library. Swing by the forums to let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you!
