This soup tastes like Fall in a bowl! Apples and caramelized onions are simmered with cider and broth, and blended with a touch of cream. The flavor is the perfect balance of savory and sweet. One bowl filled me up and made my tummy very happy!
Last Fall while visiting Harry and David in Oregon, I had lunch at a quaint bistro called Deja Vu Bistro that had this incredible soup.
I was dying to make this at home and I emailed the chef for the recipe. He was kind enough to send it to me and I've made it several times with slight adaptions to his original to lighten it up. In place of 1 cup of heavy cream I used 1/2 cup light cream. I also cut back on the butter and used slightly less cider since I was using less cream. Although it takes some time for the onions to caramelize, I think it's worth it. It also happens to be vegetarian and gluten-free. Enjoy!
