Cippolini onions are an excellent variety of onion for roasting or grilling, as they are extra sweet when cooked or caramelized.


Spring cippolini onions, green trimmed off
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dried thyme
salt to taste


  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • If onions are particularly large, they can be halved or quartered.
  • Place a glass or ceramic cooking dish in the oven to preheat.
  • Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey & salt in a bowl or glass jar.
  • In a large bowl, toss onions and dressing.
  • Sprinkle with dried thyme.
  • Carefully add onions to the hot pan.
  • Roast 15-20 minutes until onions are caramelized and just tender.
