Onions are the ultimate team player. They are used to start soups and sautes, taking very little credit for the impactful favor that they impart. They are sprinkled atop salads or roasts, adding spiciness and satisfying juiciness wherever they are used.
They are the utility player that can be used here or there, always making the other ingredients taste a little better without taking credit themselves. Fried or sauteed onions become the basis for great flavorful dishes. Onions have the ability to make so many different types of recipes heartier, fuller and more delicious.
Onions are the unsung stars of so many dishes.
But, do onions not deserve to be superstars in their own right?
After all, there is nothing like a caramelized onion. The decadent smell. The charred sweet outside and the creamy soft inside is one of those texture combinations that is like no other.
This side dish is so simple. So perfect. And, so delicious. And, it finally highlights the onion as the star of the game.
After preparing these roasted onions and certainly after tasting their distinctive creamy sweet flavor, you’ll be cheering for the onion to be your new favorite player, too!
