Weight Watchers Friendly Carmelized Onion Soup

We were a little iffy about making caramelized onion soup in the beginning. I like onions but we never thought of using them as a base for a soup. We found a recipe in a book for onion soup and one of the kiddos wanted to try it. We had her in the kitchen preparing it. She did an awesome job and the soup was amazing. This recipe is so easy, even a 12 year old can do it. If you are having second thoughts about using your Instant Pot hopefully this motivates you to get it out and start making memories.

Freezer Meals

Are you meal prepping for the week? Caramelized onion soup makes a great meal to freeze in 1 cup servings. It is the perfect zero point meal that you can grab and go. We use Great Value double zipper freezer bags to store our soup in. These bags seal tight and help prevent freezer burn, not to mention you can pick them up at Walmart for $7.53 for 75 bags.
