Sweet onion pilaff

 

    • Start by cleaning two large onions. Top and tail them and remove the green stalks from the bulbs. Set aside.

 

    • Heat some olive oil and a good knob of butter in a large casserole dish over a gentle heat. Roughly slice the green stems of the onions and add to the pan and satuee for a few minutes before adding two sliced cloves of garlic and sauteeing for another minute

 

    • Add one cinnamon stick to the pan. Rinse 180g basmati rice (enough for 4 people as a side dish) and add to the pan, stirring for a minute or two.

 

    • Take 290ml good quality vegetable stock , you can use a meat stock if you prefer, and add to the pan.  Stir well and turn the heat down before covering the pan.

 

    • Once the rice has absorbed all of the liquid and has cooked through, remove from the heat.

 

    • To finish the dish, slice the onions thinly and gently fry in some olive oil and butter for a few minutes before sprinkling over some brown sugar. When te sugar has started to caramelise and  the onions have softened, squeeze in the juice of half a lemon and season.

 

    • Stir the onions through the rice and serve.
