Charred onions offer the best of three worlds: a slightly bitter taste (in a good way), caramelized edges, and crunchy-sweet flesh. If you want to eat them like potato chips, we won't tell.


  • 3 sweet onions (such as Vidalia; about 2½ pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil or vegetable oil

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 300°. Halve onions through root ends (do not trim tops). Remove outermost papery layers from each onion.

  • Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high. Add oil and swirl to evenly coat skillet. (Oil should shimmer and start to smoke almost immediately.) Add onion halves, cut sides down, nestling them close together. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, undisturbed, until cut sides are blackened, 18–20 minutes. Surfaces will look and smell burnt.

  • Transfer skillet to oven and roast onions until the innermost layers are no longer raw but are still rigid, 10–15 minutes. Remove skillet from oven and transfer onions to a large rimmed baking sheet, placing cut sides up.

  • Let onions cool slightly, then trim papery tops with kitchen shears. Separate layers into individual petals; discard root ends (some center pieces may not curve, which is okay). Arrange petals in a single layer and season with salt.

Recipe: Sweet and sour onion petals by Yotam Ottolenghi

These onions – sweet inside, charred at the edges and swimming in a tart pomegranate syrup – started their life at Testi, a north London Turkish restaurant that we love, where a similar dish is made by charring onions next to lamb on the grill, then tossing them in salgam, a juice made from the sour-salty brine of fermented purple carrots and turnips, and finally sweetening them with pomegranate molasses. The bitter-sweet onions are served alongside the meat, cutting through its fattiness like a sharp knife.

Our onions are made with reduced pomegranate juice instead of molasses and salgam. They would obviously sit well alongside grilled meats, but we find them totally delicious also in a vegetarian context, with or without the goat’s cheese, which is optional. They will go really well with hummus, for example, an aubergine salad and some bread.

Sweet and sour onion petals

Serves 4 as a starter or part of a mezze spread


500g golf-ball-sized red onions (about 12), peeled, then halved lengthways

400ml pomegranate juice (100 per cent pure)

10g chives, finely chopped

70g young and creamy rindless goat’s cheese, broken into 2cm pieces (optional)

2⁄3 tsp Urfa chilli flakes (or another variety of chilli flake if you can’t get them)

Preheat the oven to 200C fan.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan on a high heat until very hot. Toss the onions with 2 tablespoons of oil and ¼ teaspoon of salt and place them, cut side down and spread apart, in the hot pan. Place a saucepan on top to weigh the onions down and create an even char, then turn the heat down to medium-high and cook, undisturbed, for about 6 minutes, or until the cut sides are deeply charred. Transfer the onions to a parchment-lined baking tray, charred side up, and bake for about 20 minutes, or until softened. If your onions are larger than golf-ball size, this may take longer. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, put the pomegranate juice into a medium saucepan on a medium-high heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer for about 12 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced to about 70ml and is the consistency of a loose maple syrup. Set aside to cool it will thicken as it sits.

Combine the chives with the remaining 45ml of oil and a good pinch of salt, and set aside.

Pour the pomegranate syrup on to a large platter with a lip and swirl it around to cover most of the plate. Use your hands to loosely separate the onions into individual petals, then place them haphazardly over the syrup. Dot over the goat’s cheese, if using, spoon over the chive oil, and finish with the Urfa chilli flakes.

Serve with remaining chermoula and pickled red onions on the side.

Lamb and beef kebabs

Thanks to their high fat content, you can smell good kebabs cooking from a great distance. These are no exception, so a strong extractor or an outdoor grill will serve you well. Working the meat in a mixer for a few minutes makes it firmer and chewier, in a good way.

If you can, serve these with the sweet-and-sour onions and roast potatoes below. For me, that’s a dreamy combination, but if you’re looking to save yourself some work, a simple chopped salad, pitta and Greek yoghurt or tahini sauce will be absolutely fine, too.

Yotam Ottolenghi’s lamb and beef kebabs.

Prep 10 min
Chill 30 min
Cook 45 min
Makes 8, to serve 4

1 red pepper, stem and seeds discarded, flesh roughly chopped
½ onion, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
350g lamb mince (at least 15-20% fat)
350g beef mince (at least 15-20% fat)
45g beef suet, coarsely grated
1½ tsp cumin seeds, toasted and finely crushed in a mortar
1½ tsp sumac
1½ tsp aleppo chilli flakes
Salt and black pepper
8 x 30cm metal skewers (or wooden skewers soaked in water for an hour)

Pulse the pepper, onion and garlic in a food processor a few times until very finely chopped but not pureed. Set aside, draining off any excess liquid that might have accumulated.

Put the lamb, beef, suet, spices, blitzed vegetables and two teaspoons of salt into the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attached. Work on medium speed until the mix starts sticking to the sides of the bowl – about a minute. Add a tablespoon of ice-cold water and mix for another five minutes, until you have a sticky mass. Chill for at least 30 minutes (or overnight, if you’re getting ahead).

Divide the mixture into eight balls of about 120g each. With a small bowl of cold water beside you, wet your hands and form the kebab mixture around the skewers, distributing it evenly until you have kofta about 24cm long x 2½cm thick. Smooth out any holes or tears, then place on an oven tray lined with greaseproof paper (refrigerate if you’re not cooking them straight away).

Put a well-greased griddle pan on a high heat. Once hot, grill the kofta in two batches, until charred on the outside and just cooked through (adjust the heat as necessary) – about eight to 10 minutes a batch. Put the grilled kebabs directly on top of the onions (see the recipe below), if making, so the juices drip on to the onions (or just put them on a large platter), and serve immediately.

Time to clean-up, dress-up and get ready to feast! It’s fancy food time. While I tend to cook more casual food on a day-to-day basis, I do love the results that come from putting a lot of time and care into a meal. My early training as a chef was in a fine-dining restaurant and the skills I learned there have been invaluable throughout my career. More time and energy is spent on designing a dish, choosing those components which best support the focus of the plate. Those components are given as much care and attention as whatever the ‘star’ of the plate is. Cooking techniques are chosen for best results, not for efficiency in production. That ethos can be just as easily applied to a tomato sandwich as a really fancy plate. Choice of bread, spread and garnish, all in support of perfect sun-ripened tomatoes can take a simple sandwich from ‘meh’ to ‘wow’.

Today, we’re spending some time with mushrooms in a bit of surf and turf. Pan roasted Portobello steaks get pan roasted, then braised in a light mushroom stock becoming the ‘turf’, while Lobster mushrooms stand in for the ‘surf’. They are combined with a lighter than air potato puree, tender French green beans that have been seared in a hot pan, a little blistered onion, and a herby chimichurri, the classic accompaniment to Argentinean steak. The Portobello braising liquid also gets served as a rich pan jus.

This dish takes time. If you work fairly quickly, you could have it on the table in an hour. But plan on a bit more. The chimichurri is best if it is made at least a few hours before serving, or up to a day ahead. If you don’t fancy spending that kind of time on dinner, try the chimichurri. It’s great on anything that comes off the grill.
