From I opted to broil the onions instead of baking at four hundred degrees in the original recipe. We enjoyed the onions served over baby arugula/rocket/rockette-an intense combination of flavors!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven on the BROIL setting.
  2. Arrange the onions quarters on an ovenproof grill pan or parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle pomegranate syrup all over the onion.
  4. Set the oven rack on the middle position and broil until the onion is tender and caramelized approximately 20 minutes, turning occasionally to broil evenly.
  5. If desired, serve onions over baby arugula leaves or mixed greens, pouring any residual sauce over the vegetables.

This is delicious. I used sweet onions as that is what I had on hand. I did add more Iranian pomegranate molasses than 1 tbs. I knew we love it. I used sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and did serve it with baby greens that included baby arugula. I served this dish with a very dolled up Persian style rice with lots of vegetarian additions/no saffron and Balkan yogurt to eat it with on the side. Made for NA*ME Tag! Come play!!
