If you love hosting parties, you have got to see this creative way to present an onion. While we have seen a delicious chocolate flower dessert, now you can learn how to make an onion flower in just a few slices.
These flowers are perfect for decoration during your next event.
If you want to put your onion flowers on a plate with other food items, you will need small red onions. But if you’re trying to use a serving platter, a large onion will work perfectly.
To get started, you’ll just need four red onions, a cutting board, and a sharp knife. Slice off the root at the bottom of the onion so it stands straight up.
Now cut in the onion in half almost down to the root. Then cut the onion in half again going in the opposite direction so you are left with four segments. Now cut each of those four segments in half again so you are left with a red onion sliced into 8 segments with it all joined together at the bottom of the onion. Repeat the slices with all four red onions.
Now place all four onions in a bowl. Pour on 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Mix the onions in the oil and vinegar until are four are equally covered.
Place the onions in a 9’ x 13’ greased baking dish. Put enough space between the onions and pour on the rest of the oil and vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste. Cover with aluminum foil and bake a 425°F for 25-30 minutes. Take the foil off and put in the oven for another 10 minutes.
These onion flowers make a delicious snack.
