We love the layers of flavor developed from slow cooking an onion soup - but don't always have the hours to wait for it. Spiking the broth with a nice dark abbey ale (we make ours with Bourbon Dubbel) and quickly caramelizing the onions over a higher heat are great cheats for getting the full flavor - without the full time.
Serve alongside salad for a light dinner and save what's left for lunch. The soup gets even better the next day as the flavors combine and the beer mellows.
