Turmeric has an earthy hint of ginger and pepper flavors. When added to roasted sweet red onions and then topped with cilantro as a garnish is a nice flavor blend treat. If you decide to use more than recommended in this recipe be careful because it can tend to be overpowering. Also, keep in mind that turmeric is used as a food and fabric coloring and can be difficult to remove if it spills on your clothing ;-)


  • 2 large red onions, peeled and cut into eight wedges
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. turmeric, or more to taste
  • fresh chopped cilantro to taste for garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Evenly place onion wedges in an 8 x 8 inch baking dish, sprinkle with salt, drizzle with oil and vinegar, cover and bake until tender, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Remove from oven, spoon juices from pan into a small bowl, add the turmeric, mix well, drizzle mixture over onions, return to oven and bake, uncovered, for 5 minutes, sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
