Red Onion Soup

Adapted from Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen by Deborah Madison


2 Tbsp butter
3 pounds red onions, quartered and sliced crosswise
salt and pepper
1/8 tsp dried thyme
2 bay leaves
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 cup red wine
1 cup diced tomatoes


Melt the butter in a soup pot. Add the onions and 1 tsp salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are very tender, about 20 minutes. Add the thyme, bay leaves and red wine and let the alcohol cook off. Add the tomatoes, bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and serve.
