onions monegasque with raisins

Onions Monégasque

This agrodolce (sweet and sour) dish from Monaco is an ideal accompaniment to cheeses, roasted meats and poultry, and breads, and are also a delicious vegan treat on their own. Pearl onions are simmered with spices, vinegar, olive oil, and sweet raisins, then reduced to create the perfect balance and intensity of flavors. Starting with frozen peeled onions and spiced conserves makes it a quick and easy affair. They get their beautiful golden color from the saffron in the Lemon-Sultana Marmalata, and the plump raisins are treats all on their own.
