Making French Onion Soup



Between getting the cookbook My Father's Daughter recently, along with the new camera lens, I've been cooking & photographing in the kitchen a lot lately. It's usually dark when I start dinner (courtesy of winter), so the photos don't always turn out pretty, but I like documenting the process for myself to look back on and am considering printing a little booklet of all of my favorites...someday. Here is one favorite (from the cookbook) that I make frequently: French-onion-style bean soup (recipe here). It is so delicious, and best of all, easy to make.


(simple spices)


(star of this dish: fennel bulb - so fragrant - along with garlic & onion)


(hearty, white cannellini beans)


(served, with crusty bread...or cheesy toasted baguettes)

I have 4 fennel bulbs sitting in my kitchen thanks to the convincing powers of a local vegetable salesman in my Sicilian town. He gave me 4 bulbs for a euro... and I haven't known what to do with them! I'm planning to make a fennel and orange salad tonight, but now have even more inspiration thanks to this post. The soup looks so delicious!

I've liked French Onion Soup but never loved it - mainly because I am a real hearty soup type gal! Now this recipe sounds perfect for me.
