An Ode to the Onion (Plus 8 Ways to Cook It!)

Sure, it might make you cry on occasion, but the amazing onion is worth a few tears. It’s a delicious addition to so many dishes, and there’s little I love more than the smell of garlic and onion sauteing on the stove. It’s super in a salad and one of the best burger toppings around.
And it just might be the most versatile ingredient in my kitchen. This infographic from Pounds to Pocket shows you all the ways you can cook an onion, and … well, I’ll be honest. I thought I knew all there was to know about the onion (like the best way to chop it and the best knife to do it with), but this veggie? It has layers. And not just the physical ones you peel away!
Here are about a billion (or eight, anyway) ways to cook an onion!
