About Organic Red Onions

Native to Asia, these underground bulbs are prized all over the world for the depth and flavour that they add to savoury dishes. Dry onions are fully matured, with juicy flesh and dry, papery skin and have a mild flavour that becomes wonderfully sweet upon lengthy cooking. Medium to large in shape, they have a strong flavour and are good for stuffing or baking; only use raw in salads if you want an assertive onion flavour.

These onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a mild to sweet flavour. They are often consumed raw, grilled or lightly cooked with other foods, or added as colour to salads. They tend to lose their redness when cooked. Red onions are available throughout the year. The red colour comes from anthocyanadins such as cyanidin. Red onions are high in flavonoids. They can be stored 3 to 4 months at room temperature.

Onions are a very good source of vitamin C, chromium and dietary fibre. They are also a good source of manganese, molybdenum, vitamin B6, folate, potassium, phosphorus and copper.

Onions, like garlic, are members of the Allium family, and both are rich in powerful sulphur-containing compounds, beneficial phytonutrients and antioxidants that are responsible for their pungent odours and for many of their health-promoting effects. There is extensive evidence linking onions to reducing your risk of several common cancers.

Really good colour and flavour from these red onions, I use them for salads and sandwich fillings - unlike white onions, these actually add taste! Also really good in gravy

Vegan Nut Roast With Caramelised Onion And Mushroom Gravy Recipe

Summary: Think nut roasts are boring ? Think again. This one is a rich, deliciously moist vegan nut roast for Christmas dinner. It has a base of red kidney beans, roasted peanuts and oat groats. Grated apples and carrots add moisture, colour and sweetness, while mixed seeds add crunch and nutrition. And the caramelised onion and mushroom gravy just takes things to the next level.

Lentil Shepherd's pie with champ

Summary: This is really good and lentils work incredibly well in terms of taste and texture as a alternative to mince type dishes. Upgrade the plain mashed potato to a pea and spring onion champ, an Irish dish made by combining mashed potatoes and chopped spring onions with butter and milk.
