Onion is one of the most used ingredients in our kitchens. But sadly it's rarely found as the main hero of our menus, but why? It has so many different structures and flavors almost like my favorite potatoes. So this recipe is my huge honor to this sometimes misunderstood ingredient. Try it once, and trust me you will want it more and more because it's so yummy and so easy to make.
You can even play a bit with my recipe you can add different types of onion (shallot works amazing but quite expensive), I decided to use the most common and the cheapest onion type - yellow onion as everyone can afford it and no need for any additional research for some let's say "rare" type. As well as you can use more different spices and add as an example dried tomatoes it will boost the flavor, even more, be creative use your imagination, I will just provide you with a proper base with this recipe! ;)
