Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons

Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons.
.
2 brown onions
Olive oil
Teaspoon brown sugar
Couple of cloves
Couple cloves of garlic
Chicken stock (made from a previous roast chicken dinner and frozen in small bags ready for use) or a well-flavoured vegetable stock.
Slice/s of sourdough toasted.
Quantities make enough for 1 self-isolating hungry person or 2 less- hungry people  according to the amount of chicken stock you use.
The cloves, sugar and caramelisation of the onions are what give the soup its zing! .

Mine is horse-riding along the beach. What's yours? .
Horse-riding is such great exercise, especially when using core strength to hold a good upright position on the horse when even at a canter.
.
It's never too late to start a new hobby or sport that brings you joy. .
It's so special too being at one with nature. .
