Caramelized Red Onions

Caramelized Red Onions

3-4 medium red onions sliced into flat discs
2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar (or balsamic)
2 tbsp avocado oil (or any other high smoke point oil)
2 tbsp maple syrup or silan
1/2 tsp soy sauce
1 garlic clove, crushed
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 235 degrees Celcius, and line a baking tray or glass pan with parchment paper*
2. cut the onions into flat discs, ensuring that the layers remain together as much as possible. This cut on the onions is pretty crucial for the caramelization to be most effective
3. Combine the remaining ingredients directly into the bottom of your roasting tray (no need for an extra mixing bowl, though of course you can use one if you’d like), and whisk to combine
4. Dip each onion disc in the marinade and then flip each over to the next. Ensure that the onions are in one single layer
5. Roast for 25 minutes on one side, then use a spatula to flip the onions over for an additional 15-20 minutes before removing

Notes:
*little pro tip: to ensure that your parchment paper stay in place, spray the bottom of the baking tray with oil and then press the parchment paper into the pan. This will also ensure that less of the marinade falls under the parchment paper while the onions roast.
