Last night I was in the mood for baked onion. I love grilled or baked onion, so, with this in mind I went to the store near our home and bought a leek and red onions. The recipe is simple and you can make it without the egg and milk if you are vegetarians.
- 1 leek
- 2 red onions
- 1 egg – optional
- 100 ml milk – optional
- Olive oil
- Red chili powder
Preheat oven to 220°C/ (200°C for fan assisted ovens). Cut the onions and the leek in 1-2 cm slices. At the bottom I put the green parts of the leek and on top I arranged the slices so it looks good in the tray.
Add olive oil and spices on top of it and bake them with the tray covered till the vegetables are done. I like them a little bit “Al dente”. This is the version for the vegetarians.
For the rest of us mix the egg with the milk in a bowl. Add the spices. Add the olive oil and the mix on top of the vegetables. Cover the tray and bake it till the vegetables are done.
I have an old oven so I had to check all the time and I didn’t notice how long it took to be done. I took photos with my camera today when the light was good. After that I had a good slice with homemade red sauce. It is a great side dish or just a simple dish for a light dinner.
