french onion soup

French Onion Soup
(adapted from Donna Hay: Modern Classics Book 1)
3 large Spanish onions, sliced into rings
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon brandy
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
4 cups organic beef broth (I had only 3 cups so I added a cup of chicken broth)

Place the onions, butter, oil and thyme in a large saucepan over medium heat, cover and cook for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden.
Add the flour and cook, stirring for 3 minutes. Add the brandy and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the mustard and broth and allow to simmer for 15 minutes.

1 lemon juiced and grated zest
handful of chopped parsley
1/8 canola oil
4lbs ground turkey
2 TBS salt
1 TBS pepper

sautee onion, celery, apples in oil, let cool, then add that, lemon juice, zest, parsley and the chutney to  Ground turkey and stir until mixed... make into patties and chill for 2 hours before cooking. Season with salt and pepper

*most people put the chutney on the side, we put it right into the burgers... LOVE THEM. Hampton Chutney's mango, we love added in...
