It seems when it comes to onions that I sometimes overbuy. I buy all sorts of varieties and I use a ton of them in cooking. Occasionally I find myself with onions that are just starting to get soft. Today I had two such onions. Since my daughter and I both love them we brainstormed some ideas to use these onions for lunch.
Since I had a pre-cooked whole wheat pizza crust on hand we decided to keep it simple and just caramelize them with some garlic and do an onion pizza. The whole lunch took about fifteen minutes to make including cooking time and it was quite an enjoyable lunch.
1 small red onion sliced thin
1 small yellow onion sliced thin
2 cloves garlic minced
1 broccoli floret, top only minced very fine
2 tbsp olive oil
1 ready made whole wheat pizza crust
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a saute pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil, onions and garlic over medium heat. Saute until the onions are soft and start to brown. .Add the broccoli.
Oil the pizza crust with the remaining olive oil. Top with onion and garlic mixture and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy.
