  • 2 lbs small red onions peeled and cut into wedges
  • Olive oil to taste
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Cut the onion in half then remove the out layer of skin.
  • Cut each onion into 4 wedges (or 8 wedges if they are large onions).
  • Place the onions on the baking sheet and drizzle with some olive oil.
  • Season well with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; toss to coat evenly. Add a couple of sprigs of thyme on top of the onions.
  • Place into the oven and roast for 20 minutes.
  • Flip the onions and continue to roast for another 20-25 minutes, or until caramelized and tender.
  • Remove from the oven and cool. Store in an airtight jar and use with eggs, potatoes, sandwiches, or pasta dishes. Enjoy.
