Truffled Onion Soup
Soupe à l'Onion Truffée

Serves: 4 : 4

Heat the butter in a saucepan; add the onions and cook very gently over low heat until the onions are very soft. Do not allow to burn. When the onions are light-brown, sprinkle with the flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the flour turns light-brown. Add the broth, stirring to avoid any lump and cook for 30 minutes over low heat. Meanwhile, pour the whipping cream in a small cup, grate the truffle (or cut it in very small pieces), add the truffles to the cream, cover with plastic wrap and set aside while the soup is cooking. Check the seasoning of the soup, add the truffles and the cream, stir and pour into 4 warmed bowls. Sprinkle with the grated parmesan.
