This North African dish made Vegan is a plethora of amazing flavors on the palette…….Whoa,
If you cannot find cipollini onions in your area, you can use white pearl onions instead, though the cipollini have unique sweetness, more than your average white or yellow onion, though leaving behind none of the astringent raw onion flavor.
Cipollinis become soft and practically melt in your mouth, you haven’t had caramelized onions until you’ve had them with cipollinis!
There is a bit of prep time getting the skins off them, but well worth the effort.
The combination of these with coriander, cumin, cinnamon, thyme, brown sugar, cilantro, roasted peanuts..all over basmati rice..Mmmmmm
Enjoy! I did 🙂 …I’m feeling like it may even be better as I’m sitting here having it the next day with the flavors having permeated even more..Mmm!
If you’re a carnivore 😉 have this as a side with or without the rice.
