Roasted Shallots


Hello All!  Welcome to Food ~ Flavor ~ Fun….A place to find and share some great food ideas that are loaded with flavor to be prepared and shared with family and friends to bring a lot of fun and great flavor into our lives. 

Tuesday’s are about tools and techniques.  I use roasted shallots in my French Onion Soup.  By roasting them, you bring out the sweetness of the onion.  The flavor is just great.  The technique is really easy.

Preheat the oven to 400*F.  Combine 16 to 25 peeled shallots with 1 – 2 teaspoons of olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and a few good turns of fresh ground pepper on a sheet of aluminum foil.  Fold the edges together to make a good seal and roast until tender, about 40 minutes.  Use immediately or refrigerate with a little olive oil in an air tight container for 2-3 days.

These are great in soups and sauces.  Enjoy!
