Baked Onion Slices

Baked onions are the most wonderful winter side dish. They're so sweet; they could stand in for dessert! A compliment to any meal, simple or elegant, I love to serve these with a simple dinner to add some rich sweetness to the mix. 


2 large red onions, peeled, sliced into 2-inch thick rings
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt

4-5 sprigs fresh parsley, finely minced
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
2 cups shelled hempseeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange onion slices on a shallow baking sheet, avoiding overlap. Sprinkle generously with oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and mirin. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove cover and return to oven until onions are beginning to brown, 7-10 minutes more.

While the onions bake, make the topping. Combine parsley with lemon zest and mix very well. In a dry skillet, over low heat, lightly pan toast the hempseeds. Mix them very well with the parsley and lemon zest. Season lightly with salt and mix well.When the onions are ready, remove from oven and transfer to a serving platter. Mound the topping on each onion slice and serve.

Makes 4-8 servings.
