 Ingredients List

  • 2 Medium onions
  • 1 Bunch medium leeks (about 6)
  • 12 Shallots
  • 7 c Water or vegetable stock
  • Salt & white pepper
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 6 Slices whole wheat sourdough
  • Bread
  • 1 Bunch chives, snipped fine


Peel the onions, cut them in half lengthwise, then into very thin
lengthwise slices. Cut the leeks in half lengthwise and wash them
well. Cut the leeks into 1/4-inch crosswise slices (the green tops
can be saved for stock). Peel and slice the shallots into thin
slices. Place the onions, shallots, and leeks in a heavy pot with 1
cup of water or vegetable stock. Over medium heat, cook the
vegetables until the water has evaporated and the vegetables have
begun to soften without coloring. At this point add 6 cups of water
or vegetable stock and salt and white pepper to taste. Simmer for 1/2
hour. Remove 2 cups of liquid and vegetables to a blender or food
processor. Puree well and return the puree to the remaining soup. Cut
the carlic clove in half and rub the bread slices with the cut side
of the clove. Toast under a broiler. Put 1 slice of bread into each
of 6 bowls, pour the soup over, and garnish with the chives.
