Onion Soup, Løksuppe

Løksuppe, or onion soup is not a common dish in The Blue Café. Considering how cheap it is, how easy it is to make and how tasty it is, I really don't understand why. May be it will be a more regular guest now after having it for dinner yesterday.

Three onions cut in thin halfmoon slices, fried till yellow and shiny in olive oil in an ovenproof ironpot. Fill ca 1 liter water over the onions and boil for 15 minutes. Add salt, pepper, fennel seeds, oregano and bouillon (is that the right name???) The fennel seeds were a whim there and then and it worked perfectly.

Top the soup with toasted bread and some cheese and bake in oven till the cheese is melted. I used mozzarella cheese for me and Terje, good old Norvegia for the girls.

My recipe is for a family of four.
