Cut up an onion. Add 2 cups broth, half cup white wine, 4 tbs white wine vinegar. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the liquid has all but evaporated. Makes a great sauce to put over grilled chicken breasts.

This is my favorite cold soup!

6ish tomatoes, seeded
1 large cucumber, peeled
1 red bell pepper, seeded
1 yellow onion
2 cups broth
a few cloves garlic
1 Tb olive oil
3 Tb white wine vinegar
2 Tb lemon juice
herbs (i prefer basil and cilantro!)
3 Tb mayo (this is optional, but it cuts the acid a bit)
Cayenne pepper or hot sauce to taste

Puree in blender until reaches your desired consistency. It is great with a baguette. I love to just have a small bowl over a few days and imagine all of the vitamins I’m getting!
