The mighty onion! Is there any meal it won’t improve? Onions spice up your dinner every night of the week, so how can you spice up the variety?
Onion in curry, onion in gravy, onion in soup or stew: You only need to know how to operate a frying pan to prepare its most basic form. But you’re missing a treat if you don’t consider some of the other ways you can cook them!
Caramelizing your onion, for example, will sweeten its flavours. This is a great way to liven up a tartlet or a risotto. Or if you really want to throw caution to the wind, how about a chicken, cheese and onion croissant burger?
If you’re in the market for a dish that stands on its own two feet, roasted whole onions could be the way to go. They’ll hold their ground on any plate of veggies and pack a good deal of vitamins and minerals in too.
Our new infographic offers clear instructions on how to cook an onion a number of ways. There’s plenty to add to your repertoire, keeping meal times interesting and dazzling your family.
The versatility of this powerful bulb is enough to make you cry!
