Honey Roasted Cipollini Onions


recipe and image via Stephen Cooks!


Serve warm as a vegetable side to roast meat or at room temp, cut up in a salad. Cipollini can be prepared ahead and kept refrigerated for a few days.

Ingredients
1 1/4 lb cipollini onions, unpeeled
four sprigs fresh rosemary, thyme or oregano, chopped
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey

Method

1. Place enough water in a sauce pan large enough to comfortably hold the cipollini. Bring the water to a boil.

2. Score an X in the root end of each onion and boil them in the water for 60 seconds. Drain and allow to cool. (This step makes peeling them a bit easier). Once cooled, cut off the roots and stems and remove the onion peels.

3. Preheat the oven to 450º.

4. Place the onions in a shallow dish or pan big enough to hold them all in one layer without crowding.

5. Combine the wine, soy sauce, vinegar and olive oil. Pour the mixture over the onions. Scatter on the herbs.

6. Roast in the preheated 450º oven for about 40 minutes, turning twice.
