    Ingredients
    • 4 medium size onions(each onion ~180 g)
    • 4pinches of salt
    • 4pinches of pepper
    • 4tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
    • 2teaspoons of dried sage
    • 4 small fresh rosemary branches(if necessary, can be substituted with a pinch of dried rosemary)
    Instructions
    1. heat the oven to 190°C/375°F;
    2. cut off both ends of each onion and place each onion on one of the cut ends in the center of a separate piece of foil. Leave the skin of the onion on;
    3. drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over every onion;
    4. sprinkle over every onion a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper and ½ teaspoon of dried sage;
    5. place on top of each onion a small branch of fresh rosemary and then raise all sides of the foil to wrap the onion tightly;
    6. place the wrapped onions in a baking dish and place the baking dish in the preheated oven;
    7. roast the onions for 1 h, then take out the baking dish from the oven, carefully unfold one onion and insert a knife in it. If it’s so soft that the knife goes in very smoothly, your onions are ready. Otherwise, put them back in the oven for some extra minutes;
    8. before serving, let the onions cool down a bit. Be aware that in the center of each piece of foil there might be a flavorful mixture of onion juice, oil and spices. You can use this flavorful liquid immediately in other dishes – soups, stews, dips, sauces etc. Or you can freeze it in an ice cube tray for later use;
    9. serve the onions without the skin (it will come off very easily) and without the rosemary branches.
