Stuffed onions


  • Preheat oven to 190°C.
  • Cook the onions in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water for about 12-14 mins. Then cool briefly under cold running water and pat dry.
  • Carefully peel the skin off the onions, cut in half and cut off tops. Scoop out the flesh, leaving a few layers.
  • Then place the onion ‘shells’ in an ovenproof dish and set aside.
  • Chop up the onion flesh and gently saute in a little hot oil with the mushrooms and garlic until softish.
  • Combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan, and set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix together the parsley, tasty cheese, seasonings and the saute mixture.
  • Place a heaped teaspoon of the mixture into each onion ‘shell’ and sprinkle with the breadcrumb mix. Then spray oil on top and cook in the oven for about 35 mins, checking after 20 mins.
  • Serve as an accompaniment to your favourite simple meat or fish dish.
