Stuffed Charred Onion Petals (Whole30) (Low Carb) (Vegan)
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 3 large sweet onions (such as Vidalia or Walla Walla)
  • 2 tablespoons high smoke point oil (I used coconut oil)
  • Kosher salt
  1. Cut onions in half from pole to pole, through root ends. Remove outer paper skins.
  2. Heat a large heavy-bottomed skillet (cast iron works well) to high heat. Yes, it needs to be screaming hot. Add oil. Oil should start to smoke immediately. Add onion halves, cut sides down, filling the skillet. Reduce heat to low. Cover and let cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until edges of onions are black and onions are cooked through but are not mushy.
  3. Let cool to warm. Separate onions into individual petals.
