What does onion soup taste like?

Chef's answer
It's not too heavy, as unlike other soups it's not cream based or packed with pureed vegetables. Despite the onion giving it a sweetness, the soup overall has a really nice rich savory flavour. From what I've had, it just tastes onions and pepper in hot/warm water.

When I cook with butternut squash, I always use one of these assertive ingredients to balance the sweetness: Orange or lemon juice (or zest) adds brightness and zing. A splash of vinegar helps, too. Tomatoes, which are both sweet and acidic, make a bridge for full-flavored squash dishes.
