Sauteed onions
« on: February 24, 2017, 04:21:18 PM »
I'm cooking Cream of Spinach soup tonight. Do the onions (I'm using shallots this time) need to be sauteed in a soup that will be blended up anyways, or is the sauteing part just to add texture? 
 It would be easier to just throw them in to cook and skip the saute part if not necessary

sautéing changes the flavor, mellowing it. shallots, especially, benefit from it.

When you sauté the onions you are carmelizeing them and adding another level to the flavor. It is very easy to just throw everything into a pot and cook it all together but when you sauté your aromatic s first the final product will shine. Take your time and your meal will be better. Don't forget to use good butter😀

If you use real butter, it really makes the flavor pop.  The caramelizing plus the butter really brings out the sweetness that is normally overpowered in onions and shallots.  All the alliums have a pungency that can mask the subtle sweet flavor.  When you sauté and thus caramelize, the sugars become prevalent and flavor complexity jumps.  Since the Cream of Spinach soup should have sweetness, bitterness, and some aromatic pungency, I'd say go for the gusto and sauté :D

I see a new gate coming to the GTA. Only problem is... all my shared cooking experiences would end up in the non-productive gate.
