This week, my Ocado delivery arrived....... along with someone else's bag of shopping.
I rang Ocado who said I could keep it - it felt like Christmas! - although a slightly twisted gift as the bulk of it was wheat based - including digestive biscuits - one of the things I miss most about being GF - so that was just mean!
After I'd given the gluten stuff to friends & neighbours, I was left with 1 litre olive oil, a huge bag of red onions, some lemon thyme, a bottle of red wine & some balsamic vinegar.
So this recipe kind of created itself!
I rarely cook with onions as I cry like crazy when I chop them up & always figure it isn't worth it. This was so yummy, i think it probably was worth it! - it couldn't be easier either.........once you've got past the peeling & slicing of the onions!
preheat oven to 180c
8 red onions
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons red wine
a bunch of lemon thyme
salt & pepper to taste
1 Peel the onions & slice them in half.
2 arrange on a baking dish.
3 mix the olive oil, balsamic vinegar & red wine together and pour over the onions.
4 dot with sprigs of the lemon thyme
5 season to taste
6 place in oven for 75 mins. the onions should be soft & caramelised & the whole house should smell of roasting onions - but you won't mind cos they're that delicious.
