The first soups were thick stews (sop) that were eaten soaked up with bread.
Use a French or Italian bread, or a seasoned rustic bread for this recipe, and experiment with different grated cheeses.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon coarse grind black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic granules
2 teaspoons basil
2 teaspoons oregano
1 large onion, sliced
5 cups water
5 tablespoons chicken flavored broth powder
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan. Sauté onion slices until lightly browned. Combine chicken-flavored broth powder and water in a bowl, then add to onions. Warm over medium heat, stirring, until powder is dissolved and soup is hot. Add the bread cubes and gently heat for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.
