From Everyday Food's November 2005 issue, this recipe is made on the stove top versus the roasted onion versions I've seen. The thyme also adds an interesting twist. :D

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large red onions, cut into 8 wedges (trim core if pieces won't separate)
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  1. In a medium saucepan, toss to combine onion wedges, thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until onions release their moisture, 30-35 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low; leave cover on and cook onions until golden, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in balsamic vinegar; cook until syrupy, 1-2 minutes.
