The sweetness of the onions paired with the nutmeg make this French-inspired soup rich and satisfying. Top with toasted croutons, chopped toasted hazelnuts, and/or diced small bits of prosciutto; chopped chives are the understated garnish. As an experiment one night I added toasted almonds, diced cooked shrimp, and some watercress to this soup–not authentic but very tasty.
