Onion Soup

Onion Soup

This is low calorie DIET food (100 cals per serving +1½ portion of over5aday) but is still a great filler and onions are really good for you. You can prepare in advance and chill or freeze and re-heat in the microwave so it can be quite portable.
Counts as an Over5days recipe on the Pro52diet.
