The Best Onion Recipes: 14 Ways to Use a Bag of Onions!

Earlier in the week, I was throwing together a quick lunch, when I realized I didn’t have any vegetables on hand. No vegetables, that is, except a few onions. So I cut one up, sautéed it for a few minutes, and folded it into a delicious pasta dish. The onion lent just a hint of sweetness and a little crunch. It was pretty great and I decided it was time to give onions their due.

Onions don’t just provide the flavor backbone of almost every savory dish, they work wonderfully as a featured ingredient too! So next time you find yourself with an extra bag of onions, try making them the star of the show.

Head below for 14 terrific onion recipes that might just have you rethinking onions altogether!
