A very simple onion soup recipe. No need for fancy ingredients or super-accurate measurements, and only very little preparation work needed. Preferably use a homemade vegetable broth!

The Recipe Steps
A) Medium-heat up the oil in the pot
B) Add the onions into the pot and cook for ~10 minutes with frequent stirring; make sure the onions soften without getting charred
C) Mix in the sugar, salt, and pepper, carry on cooking for ~20 minutes with frequent stirring until onions turn golden brown (taste and add in additional seasonings if necessary)
D) Add in the garlic and vegetable broth, and bring the soup to boiling state.
E) Lower the heat and let the soup simmer for ~15 minutes.
