Here’s one of Mrs. Tyrannocaster’s easy summer recipes, another great side dish like her roasted peppers.
Since I’ve pretty much given everything away in the picture above, let’s get right to it.
Mrs. Tyrannocaster’s Onions & Balsamic Basil
3 large red onions, sliced
1 cup packed fresh basil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
3-4 tablespoons avocado oil
Salt & pepper
What To Do
Toss the onions with 2-3 tablespoons of oil. Roast for 20 minutes at 400F. (You might want to use a lower temperature if you are not using avocado oil, which has a high smoke/oxidation point.) Stir, add more oil if needed; cook another 10-15 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and cook until soft and sticky, 5 minutes. Stir in basil, which will wilt; add salt & pepper to taste and serve immediately.
Here are the onions after they have cooked for a while, with their added balsamic vinegar:
Here is the added basil:
The finished dish, ready to serve:
