An onion is like a salad, it can be cooked and enjoyed at home.
A freshly cut one is good enough, but if you don’t have a knife or fork, it’s best to eat the onion raw or slice it in half.
This recipe uses fresh onion, so you can eat it raw or use the slices in a salad.
But, if you’re looking for a thicker, more satisfying alternative, I have a recipe for it.
This onion is deliciously tender, sweet, salty, crunchy and spicy.
It’s the perfect summery accompaniment to soups, sauces and stews.
Ingredients 1 large onion, chopped into medium-sized pieces 1 medium yellow bell pepper, chopped finely into small pieces 1/2 tsp dried oregano 1 tsp dried thyme 1 tsp sea salt 1/4 tsp ground black pepper 1/8 tsp black pepper powder 1/16 tsp ground ginger, grated 1/32 tsp ground cinnamon 1/10 tsp ground nutmeg 1/6 tsp ground cayenne pepper 1 tbsp olive oil 1/3 cup fresh rosemary, chopped for garnish Instructions Peel and devein the onion.
In a small bowl, whisk together the onion, bell pepper and oreganon.
Add the thyme, salt and pepper and pepper to taste.
In another small bowl whisk together oreganol, salt, pepper and ginger.
Season to taste with salt and nutmeg.
Pour the onion mixture into a large pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender.
Remove from the heat and stir in the rosemary and season with more salt and cinnamon.
Serve with a side of your choice of condiments.
If you’re still on the fence about onion, this is the perfect salad.
It will be a perfect addition to soufs, sauces or stews to add to your meal.
Recipe Notes This is the same recipe that I made with fresh onions and peels.
For a thicker and more savory version, I recommend using fresh rosebuds.
This is a great alternative for sautéing or roasting vegetables or adding to sauces.
