Bring water to a boil and add chicken base. Chop all vegetables and add to water. Fry chopped onion in a little oil; drain and add to water and vegetables. Add seasonings and tomato sauce. Simmer for 2 hours.

What's the purpose of frying the onion prior to adding it to the rest of the ingredients? Sounds delicious! (01/08/2007)
The reason why you fry the onion, is so you can bring out the "sweetness" of the onion. Make sure you don't overcook. Fry just until the onions are clear and tender. Hope you try, it's a family favorite of ours.(01/10/2007)
