Onions? - Page 2

post #31 of 46
I am not an onion person. I can't cut them up or even be in the kitchen while they are being chopped without them making tears run down my face so bad I can't even see!! haha! My husband loves them.

Love 'em! I'll cook them into almost every dish (it's a good compromise for us in our relationship because DH loves garlic and i don't. This way we can both stink to high heaven!)

I used to hate onions when I was a kid too and most other veggies. Now I'll eat practically anything, especially if it makes DH cringe including munching on a big piece of raw onion.

I cook them into any meal I can and mostly just eat them raw on burgers. The smell sticks to my hands for days when I cut them too.

Oh, I have to have onions! I go into withdraw if I don't eat something with onions at least 3 times a week.

My great grandfather used to eat at onion like it was an apple. Peel it and take a big bite! He would eat the whole thing! Now, I'm not that crazy about them.

My old boyfriend would not eat onions, but he loved the taste of onion powder on steak. For some people I think its the texture or the idea of onions...kind of like mushrooms (love them too!)

You forgot to mention garlic.

I rarely cook a meal that doesn't contain onion in one way, shape or form. I love the sweet onions the best.

I like onions grilled, like with potatoes. This is really good: take a whole onion, slice it bloomin' onion style, place onion and lots of barbeque sauce inside tin foil and cook it on the grill.

I do not like them raw and many people have digestive problems with raw. But I have discovered that raw onions are very beneficial for bronchitis and asthma, so I've started eating them raw. The supplement quercetin which is highly recommended for allergy treatment comes from the skin of red onions.

I love 'em! Cooked, raw, it doesn't matter. And they are good for you (but not for cats!).

My husband HATES raw onions. I can't imagine a cheeseburger without them, though.

I like them IF they're cooked. I don't like raw at all. Funny, bf has been pestering me to make some from scratch French Onion soup....maybe today will be the day.

Reading thru this thread again is making me hungry for Onion Rings!

Several people have mentioned the smell of onions staying on their hands. Lemons will fix that! Just slice one open, make some lemonade with the juice, and then rub the pulp over your hands...

I LOVE onions! I put them on everything, raw mostly, but also cook them into dishes.

I eat onions everytime I can on everything. Persi comes around and wants some and I have to remind him that onions can lead to kidney failure in cats.

Onions are a staple for me (counts as one of my veggies ). I eat them raw, fried, grilled, caramelized, boiled, diced, sliced, and all of the above. Green, red, yellow, sweet, white, shallots, etc.

Try slicing up some onions, break them up and stir fry them with 1 tblspn sesame seed oil, 2 tblspn's of soy sauce, 2 tblspn's brown sugar, 1 tblspn mirin (japanese cooking wine), 2 tblspn water and cook till they're translucent and tender. Sprinkle with black pepper. Makes awesome side dish with anything (any rice dish, with your burger, with your steak or chop, etc).

I love onions, but only if they're cooked. Onion rings, sauteed onions, french onion soup...yummy! I also love mushrooms( again, cooked, not raw), and raw tomatoes with salt! My grandfather has a garden and he always has sooo many tomatoes. We just slice them and sprinkle some salt, or a totato sandwich on toast with just mayo and salt. YUM!! I can't wait for the tomatoes to grow!

Pretty awesome

I love them over a burger especially like a hamburger steak. Dad got me started on that years ago. But they have to be cooked like the way you stated I don't like them raw.

I love onion rings but I have to be craving them before I want them. And I do alot of cooking with them but I normally talk my dad into cutting them for me. I feel bad for whoever ends up living with me I will be always bugging them to cut the onions up. And then telling them to get out of my kitchen once they get done.
