Herb Roasted Onions

Herb Roasted Onions

These herb roasted onions by Ina Garten recently made their way around the food blogging sphere and I immediately bookmarked them to try later. While I was looking for side dishes for my steak tenderloin in a mushroom and blue cheese sauce I came across the bookmark and decided that it was time to try them. I really enjoy roasting vegetables of all sorts and I was looking forward to roasting onions with a tasty vinniagrette. This recipe is pretty straight forward, no muss and no fuss. Roasting the onions brought out their natural sweetness and the tangy vinniagrette both highlighted it and contrasted it very nicely. I am pleased to have found another really tasty way to enjoy onions!

I tend not to think of onions as side dishes that can stand on their own, but seeing this may have convinced me otherwise.
