Star of the Month: Onions

Onions are the foundation of so many recipes, yet often undervalued. Today we celebrate their greatness!

Recipe of the Month: Sweet, Caramelised Onions

  1. Peel two onions and thinly slice into half-moons.
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add 1 tbs oil or butter.
  3. Add the onions and stir to coat in oil.
  4. Turn the heat to low and allow to soften and break down (approximately 5 minutes)
  5. When the onions are starting to turn a light caramel colour, add 1 tsp sugar and stir.
  6. Cook on low until they’re a deep caramel colour, stirring occasionally.

Add to rice or salad for an instant flavour boost or bake it into quiche or tarts for a savoury treat.
