Caramelized Onions


Caramelized onions are a staple in almost every meal I make. They are a great way to start off tasty sauces, add to homemade hummus, add to veggie tacos/burgers and the list goes on and on! I like to make a large batch and save the leftovers for an easy addition for future meals.

Quick kitchen hack: You can freeze extras in silicone ice cube trays for quick single-use add-ins.


Ingredients:
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 3-4 large Onions
  • Splash of Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Method
  1. Dice onions.
  2. Put a couple spoonfuls of coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat and add diced onions.
  3. Cook for a few minutes until you see a few golden edges, season with a splash of balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Turn down to low heat and put the lid on for around an hour, (the longer the better), stirring occasionally.
  5. At the very end, remove the lid, turn up to high, stir constantly until the excess liquid evaporates and the onions get little colour.
  6. Turn off, add more salt and pepper to taste and let rest.

Slow Cooker Method:

You can also throw all the ingredients in the slow cooker on low and let them do their thing overnight or longer. You get a slightly different taste but it’s a big timesaver.
