I thought I would post a recipe for an item that often gets overlooked at the farmers market. This is a simple addition to the grill that tastes great. You can steam the onions by placing them in foil and sealing it or grill them directly using a grilling screen or rack made especially for vegetables and other small objects. I recommend staying away from the foil and love the grilled taste.
Grilled Green Onions
12 green onions, rinsed, ends trimmed
6 spring garlic greens (or 3 cloves of garlic, chopped in half)
3 tbsp sunflower, olive, or melted butter
A few shakes of smoked paprika
Salt and ground pepper to taste
Place onions and garlic with oil in a bowl and work the oil over the greens to cover. Preheat grill to medium-low heat. Place greens on a grilling rack. Grill until tender, around 10 minutes.
Cut a sheet of aluminum foil to about 12 by 15 inches. Arrange the greens side by side in the center of the foil sheet. Keeping the green onions flat, fold the foil to make a sealed cooking pouch. Place the foil packet on the preheated grill away from the main heat source. Allow the green onions to steam 5 to 7 minutes. After removing from grill, sprinkle with smoked paprika. Salt and pepper to taste.
Makes around 4 servings.
