Ingredients

  1. Peel the onions without cutting through the bases.Cook them in Large Pan of boiling water for 20 mins. Drain and refresh in plenty of cold water.
  2. Using a small sharp knife,cut around and scoop out each central section. Keep 2-3 layers of Onion.
  3. Lightly sprinkle with salt and leave onions to drain upside down.
  4. Preheat oven to 200 C.
  5. Dry the onions using tissue.
  6. Fill in the stuffing of your choice using a small spoon.Arrange the onions in oiled baking tray. Sprinkle the top with grated cheese and oil. Bake for 45 min or until the onions are tender and gold.
  7. Serve hot.
My personal Notes.

  • If Onions are small reduce the boiling time. 10-12 mins would be enough.
  • You can reuse the scooped out onions for your stuffing.
  • Baking time can be reduced too.Mine were done in 30 mins. So check your onions after 30 mins if it is done.
Feta Cheese,Spinach,Garlic Stuffing
  • 500g fresh spinach, blanched
  • 250g Feta cheese
  • Scooped out onions cut as small as you can.
  • Cinnamon powder 1 and a half tsp
Reduce/Increase the above quantities according to the number onions to be stuffed.
  1. Squeeze out excess water from spinach, and then roughly chop.
  2. In a pan heat some oil; fry the onions until golden brown. Add the spinach, cinnamon powder. Make sure all ingredients are mixed well. cook for 1-2 mins.
  3. take out from heat, mix in crumbled Feta cheese and garlic.
  4. It doesn't need salt to be added. Taste first and add salt according to your taste.
