Winter Recipes are Knocking: Hello Onions
(NewsUSA) – Cooking without onion is like trying to make a BLT without the tomato — it’s possible to fill the void with something else, but you’ll probably feel like you’re missing something. Plus, now that it’s time to put on layers and nestle up to a fire, winter recipes are a’brewing, and they’re full of tasty onions.
Yellow onions, in particular, that are harvested during cold weather months are perfect for roasts, soups, slow-cooked dishes and other winter favorites. Specifically, yellow onions are ideal for these applications to help build flavor profiles because of their robust, savory taste.
Whether headlining a dish, such as french onion soup or playing a more subtle, supporting role, like meatloaf with onions, this vegetable lends itself to a variety of uses, making onions about as flexible as a yoga master.
Regardless of how you use the staple vegetable, onions offer a great deal of nutritional value, and they are associated with lower risks of heart disease and cancer.
