Fire Roasted Onions Recipe

These go with just about anything you cook on the grill. They’re so easy to make and take up so little room, there’s no reason not to have them with pretty much any meal.


4 large red onions
8 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh or dried rosemary
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves (or 1 t.sp dried)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heavy-duty aluminum foil for grilling

1. Halve the onions across the equator and place on a medium platter, cut-side up. Drizzle each onion half with 1 T. olive oil and a pinch each of rosemary thyme salt, and pepper.

2. Wrap the onions and herbs in a double-layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place the wrapped onions flat side down onto the coals or on the top of the grill over medium- high heat and roast until the onions become tender, 20-30 minutes.
