Servings: 1
Preparation Time: 5 minutes

  • 1 red onion
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
  • pinch salt
  • pinch pepper
  • pinch rosemary

Cut an onion five times down the middle until you get 1 inch from the bottom of the onion then splash on the balsamic vinegar, coconut oil, salt, pepper and rosemary.

Broil in the oven at 400° F for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot.

Note: Some ovens have broil settings which are adjustable, however if your oven has a predetermined broil temperature then you may place your pan with the onion on the middle rack and monitor carefully until done. (Onion should be soft and translucent but not mushy.)
