As Mireille Guiliano says in her wonderful book, French Women Don’t Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure (affiliate link), "The evening soup eater tends to consume less fat and less food overall, feeling satiated through the night, after which she needs 'a real meal' on rising to get her through the morning."

This sounds awesome Martha!
I made the Spanish onion potato soup tonight and must thank you for a wonderful recipe. The spices are right on. I used the stove top to cook it and let the onions cook up bit before adding everything else. had to add garlic as well. Well balanced and with bread just delicious.
This sounds lovely. Going to give this a go. thanks for sharing this recipe.
what can I substitute for sherry?
Hi Elyce, I've never made this recipe with anything other than the sherry. I did a little online research and one suggestion that sounded good was diluted apple cider vinegar. You might want to try 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons water. (https://tastessence.com/sherry-substitute) Hope this helps.
