Molly Weasley's Onion Soup

© by Mari (a.k.a. Twinsmum)


4 large, sweet onions, chopped
1 rib of celery (the middle with the tops works well), chopped
2 Tbsps (60 g) butter
4 cups (1L) of chicken stock
1 small sprig of thyme (or ¼ tsp dried)
2 sprigs of parsley (or 2 tsps dried)
1 small bay leaf
½ cup (125 ml) of half & half (or single cream)
2 egg yolks
Salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese, shredded, to serve
Fresh parsley, for garnish


In a large saucepan, sautee onion and celery in butter on moderate heat (without browning) until soft.

Add chicken stock and herbs and bring to a boil.

Lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Run the chunks through blender or food mill, removing the herb sprigs, if you wish.

In a large cup, beat egg yolks into cream then temper with a few ladles of hot soup before pouring it into the pot.

Serve with a light sprinkle of parmessan cheese and garnish with fresh parsley.

Vegetarian Option
Use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock, and thicken with a little cooked potatoes instead of egg yolks.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!

Also note that the tutorials, recipes and patterns found here have not been tested and that The Leaky Cauldron's Harry Potter Crafts section is not responsible for any mistakes they may contain. If you do find something wrong in one of them, however, please e-mail us to let us know.
