Everyone is aware of the French Onion Soup. But here I gave a twist to the original recipe by adding some coriander roots and oats to give some thickness to the soup. Some healthy whole wheat pasta also was thrown in.
This not only makes a wholesome meal but a satisfying one at the same time. Light on the stomach, this delicious one-pot delicacy can be relished anytime of the day with some croutons or bread sticks. Please find below a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.
