Overwhelmed by onions

THE ONION! In all it’s various forms, it has to be one of the most used and appreciated items in my larder. The brown onion, white onion, red onion, shallot, spring onion, salad onion, leek…all have various attributes and uses, and don’t even get me started on their cousin, garlic (that’s one for another post).

As well as inducing tears when you cut into the onion, they have an interesting texture. They add a refreshing crunch when added raw to salads and become much silkier and smoother when cooked. And to me there is no better smell than the smell of frying onions!

I adore vegetables, and this love doesn’t get much bigger than I how much I’m into onions! One of my cousins hates most vegetables, especially onions. Her sister often finds herself blending cooked onions into her pasta sauces as she can’t do without the flavour, but has to remove the evidence!

Forming the starting point of most things I cook, the onion makes a great base, it’s aromatic flavours add so much depth to any dish. They can be quite sharp and pungent when raw, but when cooked become much sweeter and more flavoursome. Onions should be celebrated more for their unique properties, they are so versatile! As well as adding background flavours to a dish, they can be fiery and powerful on their own.

As a homage to the onion, here are a some recipes which celebrate the onion as the star of a dish, and not just a compliment to another key ingredient.

Cranberry Roasted Shallots, with Capers

Caramelised Onion and Roquefort tartlets

French onion soup


Red onions, sliced and roasted.

Drizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with Maldon salt.

Pumpkin, red pepper and rocket pasta salad

1 large red onion, sliced

2 onions, sliced

1 red pepper, roughly chopped

225g Fusilli pasta

200g haricot beans, cooked

50g rocket

150g seedless red grapes, halved

4 cloves of garlic, crushed

Red pepper corns, cumin seeds and coriander seeds, crushed in a pestle and mortar.

Olive oil


1 lemon, juiced and zested


Put the pumpkin and onions in a baking dish. Add olive oil, garlic (save some for the dressing) and ground spices so all the veg is coated. Bake at 180° for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the red pepper and bake for another 30 minutes until cooked.

Cook the pasta until it´s al dente and combine with the haricot beans, roast vegetables and rocket.

Scatter the grapes over the top of the vegetarian/vegan salad.

For the dressing:

Mix equal parts olive oil, tahini and lemon juice in a small jam-jar and add chopped garlic, grated lemon zest, salt and pepper. Shake the jar and pour the dressing over the salad.
