Five Onion Soup

This has been a family favorite for years. We served it as a first course for our Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner but it is delicious any time.
1/4 cup butter
3 large onions, sliced
3 medium leeks, sliced (white and light green parts
1 bunch scallions, sliced (white part only)

2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon flour
8 cups chicken broth, preferably home made
1 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons brandy
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Add onions, leeks, green onions, shallots, ginger and sauté until very tender, about 20 minutes. Lower heat as needed to prevent browning. Stir in garlic and cook another minute. Add cayenne and sprinkle with flour, mix well and cook 3 minutes. Add broth and wine and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in brandy, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Simmer 15 minutes, taste and adjust seasonings. Serve hot.

1 onion, peeled and quartered through the stem
2 shitake mushrooms, stemmed and wiped clean

Salt and pepper
5 cups high quality vegetable stock
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut pumpkin into 2 inch pieces. Combine pumpkin, onion, mushrooms and garlic on a rimmed baking sheet. Add oil and 2 teaspoons salt, toss to coat, then spread in a single layer. Roast until pumpkin is tender, about 30 minutes. Toss vegetables halfway through. Let cook, then remove pumpkin seeds. Transfer vegetables to a medium saucepan, heat over medium. Pour in 2 cups stock and puree with an immersion blender until smooth. With the blender running, slowly add remaining 3 cups stock and puree until smooth. Bring soup just to a simmer, remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

Sorrel Soup with Poached Egg

Wash about 4 ounces of sorrel and strip out the tough stem. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a saucepan and add 1 onion, finely chopped, 1 or 2 leeks, finely sliced and 1 or two large carrots, finely chopped. Sauté gently until softened. Add 2 cups good chicken stock and 2 tablespoons long grain rice, well rinsed. Bring to a boil and simmer 20 minutes. Add the raw sorrel and using an immersion blender, puree until nice and smooth. Add another tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon heavy cream. Reheat without boiling and season well with salt and pepper. To serve, ladle into soup bowls and top with a poached egg with a little cream drizzled over.
