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!
Herb Roasted Onions
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic (chopped)
- 3/4 teaspoon thyme (chopped)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 red onion (cut into large wedges)
- 1 yellow onion (cut into large wedges)
- 1 teaspoon parsley (chopped)
- Mix the lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon mustard, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in a bowl.
- Toss the onions in the dressing.
- Remove the onions from the dressing and roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until tender and slightly browned, about 30-40 minutes.
- Serve drizzling the leftover dressing and the parsley.
I love this recipe. Seeing your post makes me want it again.
I made these a while back with cipollini onions and baby red torpedo onions, it was delicious!
They look great but your tenderloin looks even better.
Delicious for any kind of grill fish or meat, right Kevin?
Amazing that you always have such a good idea.
Have a wonderful week end.

A great accompaniment! Really tasty!
I agree, I love the sweetness that comes with roasting your vegetables!
I tend not to think of onions as side dishes that can stand on their own, but seeing this may have convinced me otherwise.
raw onions make me nauseous, but if they’re roasted to within an inch of their lives, i can’t get enough. i love what you’ve done here!

I took one look at the title and thought to myself “that must be an Ina recipe”! I love how she uses onions. Just today I saw her make a tomato tart with caramelized onions. Love your photo!
Yaaaay! I was wondering whether you’d do a separate post on these and you have! Definitely want to try them…
I love roasted onions and those look great!
Yes, I made these, too and they were delish. I bet they were a good side to your steak!
I never think of serving roasted onions as a side dish, maybe it’s time I started. These look delish Kevin, and I’m sure they complimented the steak beautifully.
I loved your onion gratin and now I love these! YUM!
I can smell the herbs 🙂
