balsamic roasted pearl onions


for a different type of side dish, try this recipe from everyday food by Martha Stewart.  the onions are very tasty, with the recipe coming together in a matter of minutes.  the calorie count on this dish is low as well, recorded as 81 calories per serving, with low carbs and fat grams.

i used two packages of fresh pearl onions from the market, but frozen onions which have been thawed can be used as well.

if you are into flavored vinegars and oils, i would experiment with this dish.  the flavor of the onions would be compatible with just about any of the gourmet choices.

to make this dish:  preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  soak the fresh onions in warm water to loosen the skins and then cut off the ends and peel.

toss the onions with 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.  season with salt and pepper to taste.  roast until tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.

i stirred my onions to achieve even cooking time during the process.  serve as a side dish with fish, chicken or beef. garnish as desired with parsley or dill.   this is a very tasty way to present onions.
