My darling baby gal doesn't eat onions in general, but every time I make this onion soup I don't hear her whining. That's how delicious this onion soup is. It goes very well with rice, millet, quinoa, sweet potatoes/potatoes or a piece of bread.
I can hear you asking, " are you talking about scallions?"
Spring onions vs scallions
- You might be wondering, "are spring onions and scallions the same?"
- Spring onions and scallions are of the same allium family.
- However, scallions also know as green onions, never produce a bulb as the onions do, and they are mild in flavor
- Spring onions, on the other hand, are young onions that have been harvested before the onions fully mature. Their bulb can be either white or red
- They are sweeter and tender than mature onions with less developed onion flavor.
- The greens of spring onions are tougher than those of scallions, but you can cook and enjoy them like in this onion soup
What to substitute tomatoes with
- If you are avoiding nightshade veggies, you can then substitute the tomatoes with pumpkins, carrots, mushrooms, or you can just leave them out.
- However, if you've no issues with nightshades, substitute tomatoes with sweet potatoes, potatoes, bell peppers, etc.
When choosing the green onions don't go for very mature ones otherwise you might not like doing some extra chewing hahaha
