Anyone else like to eat red onions raw with some olive oil, lemon? ( pre-BTD I loved it with a little bleu cheese dressing)

I seem to crave red or green onions raw in green salads but really just enjoy eating any onion raw like that. Just wondered if its simply because I love the taste or?
I take vitamin/mineral supps and quercetin plus so I don't think its lack of nutrients. Many people prefer cooked onions but I prefer mine raw.

I plan to try new ways /new veggies to eat in the new year as I usually stick to the same old familiar ones, whether for salads / soups or sides. Soups will be easiest as I do enjoy putting a variety in the pot...great flavor.
Speaking of flavor, its time for ratatouille again..been awhile.

This is nothing fancy, but if you need veggies and you're in a hurry it's great.  Get yourself a glass dish with a glass lid.  Dump in your frozen veggies (I especially like broccoli or the California blend Ribbit mentioned), put on the lid, and microwave for five minutes or so, depending on how much and your microwave's power.  Voila, quick and easy steamed vegetables.

I loooove raw onions and have been quite the onion addict since I started ER.  I go through tons of them and was very fortunate to get a nice variety in my fall CSA this year!  It does seem a bit like a craving 'cause if I forget to put them on my salad it's just not right.

Quoted from ruthiegirl

This time of year, I made sweet potato latkes. Bake whole sweet potatoes, cool and peel, then add eggs and spices (onion, garlic, salt) and maybe a little rice flour (optional) and fry in olive oil.


I did this too this year!  They were fantastic, better than with regular potatoes, I think.  I grated mine raw, mixed in egg, spices, and grated onion, and a bit of arrowroot.  Fried in coconut oil (SF on my Swami).

Chloe,
Thanks for starting this link.
Love all the good ideas everyone has.
I'm going food shopping today and will be experimenting with some of these ideas, especially roasting the veggies!
I have been a bit boring, using the steaming and boiling methods, and sometimes quick fry with olive oil.  
I do make soups also, using a variety of veggies, Onion/Garlic, parsnips, carrots, green beans and also often add some wakame for the iodine I think I just discovered I'm short on.
Ruthie,
love that quiche idea, another one I'll try.
