Red Onions...Purple to me..
Member Name: dabella-q
Advantages: colourful, flavourful and long lasting
Disadvantages: too many outer leaves
Red Onions? More like purple onions if you ask me.
They make for colourful garnishing of food. I slice them in thin slices and use them on rice dishes, potatoes, salad, pizza and meat.
I also blend them with tomatoes and peppers to make a traditional tomato stew. Compared to the white and yellow varieties, they have the most flavour and help reduce the tanginess of the tomato.
I also use them with garlic for chicken marinade. I use them with cream, mushrooms and shrimps for a quick sauce to go with couscous.
Compared to the other vareties, they tend to last longer, sometimes I have a bag of red onions for three months and they are still fresh. They don't start growing in storage either.
The organic varieties are the best.
The only disadvantage in my opinion is that you usually have to peel thre to four layers before getting the onion but that is probably why they tend to last longer than the others.
Hope you enjoyed the review and please leave cooments on your purple onion experiences. Thank you.
