As we start Valentine’s / Galentine’s month I thought it would be nice to create some dishes that would work well for a special meal or romantic dinner. These soft, caramelised, oven-roasted onions with a gorgeous filling of sundried tomatoes, herbs, feta and quinoa on a romesco sauce are such a wonderful combination of flavours and textures. Perfect as a starter or a main, the onions and the sauce can be made in advance and just baked when needed…easy right?

How to Make the Romesco Sauce:

  1. Add all the sauce ingredients into a blender. 
  2. Drizzle in oil as you blend until you reach a smooth consistency

How to Make 2 Stuffed Onions:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C
  2. Cut the ends off the onions, peel, and then make a cross cross in the middle and scoop out the inner layers (don’t throw these away) keeping the outer layer intact. Coat well with oil and bake for 20-25 mins until cooked but the onion is still intact
  3. Whilst the onion shell is in the oven chop up the inner layers finely. In a pan, sauté the chopped onion with a little oil until translucent, add the sun dried tomatoes, quinola and stir for a few minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat, crumble in the feta and add the parsley and lemon juice and zest
  5. Stuff the quinoa filling into the onion shells, top with pistachio breadcrumbs and return the onion to the oven for a further 5 mins
  6. Serve with the romesco sauce
