A nest of confetti-colored vegetables and a honey-mustard glaze elevates a simple onion to a regal dish! This is courtesy of Vegetarian Times Cookbook.
Onions and Filling
- 10 medium Spanish onions
- 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 cup whole kernel corn (frozen or canned)
- 1 cup diced zucchini
- 1 cup grated carrot
- 1 cup diced canned beet
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt, more to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, more to taste
- Onion and Filling: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Slice the onions in half on the equator.
- Remove the centers, leaving a "bowl" in the center of the onion halves (reserve the centers for another use).
- In a bowl, stir together 1/2 cup bread crumbs, corn, zucchini, carrots and beets.
- Firmly pack the filling in the hollowed-out onion halves and arrange them in a shallow baking dish so that the onions fit snugly.
- Pour the water around base of the onions.
- Glaze: In a separate bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients.
- Drizzle half of the mixture over the tops of the stuffed onions.
- Bake 30 minutes.
- Drizzle with the remaining glaze sauce.
- Bake 30 minutes more.
- Just before serving, sprinkle the onions with the remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs and place the onions under the broiler until the crumbs are toasted and golden brown.
If I could give this a 10 I would, it was perfect. I cut the recipe down. I have a program that does it for you. It came out perfect great flavor. My husband is an onion freak so this fit him perfect. We had onion onion left and he took it to work. he armed it in the mircowave and it turned out great. Thanks Sharon great recipe.
I followed the recipe exactly (except for reducing the quantities of all ingredients). I was very pleased with how beautiful and impressive the onions looked. But unfortunately, we really did not care for the taste. Neither my husband nor I were able to finish even one "onion bowl". I don't know why, because I like all of the ingredients and the recipe sounded so good. I guess it just doesn't suit my palate, although it may well suit someone else's.
