  • 1 clove of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 2 brown onions sliced
  • 1 dessertspoon olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Massel chicken stock powder
  • boiling water


  • Place olive oil in a saucepan and heat – add sliced onion and cook until softened and turning brown. It will take approx 5 minutes, but keep stirring and watch to avoid burning.
  • Then add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Pour in 4 cups of boiling water, tamari and stock powder.  Simmer for 20-30 minutes. The liquid will reduce so you may need to add a little more hot water before straining out two thirds of the onions.
  • If you leave all the onion in the soup it may cause gas and discomfort.
  • Strain and serve sprinkled with parsley.


It is suitable for freezing – stores well.
