QDOS (Quick & Dirty Onion Soup)


I was working late nights earlier this year & I would come back home (hotel) a little cold and a little hungry, but not hungry enough for a meal. At the same time, I wanted to avoid having an unhealthy late snack which would inevitably contain either too much sugar or too much salt. So I started making myself some onion soup, which I found had an exceptionally warm & satisfying effect, especially in combination with a good book in bed.

Serves: 1


  • 1/2 an onion
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Pepper to taste



Chop the onion. It doesn’t have to be very fine.

Add chopped onion to the water & bring to a boil. Add salt & pepper. Cover and simmer for about 3-4 minutes.
Occasionally stir & mash the onions to get the juice out.

Strain into a cup & sprinkle [freshly ground] pepper on top.
