Onion Thyme Soup

Onion is a popular flavour and texture enhancer in varied dishes, ranging from soups to subzis. However, in this unique soup, this low-fat, cholesterol fighting ingredient plays a key role together with dried thyme! A generous dose of spring onions imparts a fabulous taste as well as some colour to the Onion Thyme Soup, while the vegetable stock deepens the flavour and texture. To reduce the calorie count of this healthy bowlful, wheat flour has been used as a thickening agent instead of plain flour or cornflour.
