Sweet, sweet, success…

as promised, here’s the recipe!

Crockpot Caramelized Onions (Vegan)

  • 5 small onions
  • 2 TB Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Chop the onions, and place in a sprayed crockpot. Dot the top with Coconut Oil and salt. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours, stirring every hour or so. If there’s a lot of moisture, leave the lid off until the liquid is absorbed (about 30 minutes).

I still can’t believe 1. How long that took (this was the “quick” version – most recipes take double that time) and 2. How ALL those onions shrink into nothing…

We roasted some Cauliflower “Steaks” – coated in olive oil, salt, and pepper – 350 for 40-50 minutes, turning once halfway

    Oh wow, love that brie roasted cauliflower and caramelized onions. Must give this a try! I made these onions in the crock pot over the summer, they freeze well too. I froze them in small batches to pull out when needed.

    I am looking away from all those onions! I know what you mean about the DVR though – we haven’t watched a program with commercials in ages!

    I have got to make these…like tomorrow! I almost bought a 12 dollar jar of pickled onions at Whole Foods the other day. I adore a good onion! This will be a lot easier on the wallet and probably just as tasty! Thank you for sharing, sweet girl! I hope you are having a great start to your week.
