Onions are a staple for making the “base” of soups, stews, braises, and stocks, but how often do you see a dish that focuses just on the onions for their own sake? Well, that’s what this soup is: get your onion-chopping goggles out and get ready to transform those tear-jerkers into a sweet, creamy bowl of soup with the magic of heat, caramelization, and homemade chicken stock.
