Young clean the onion and cut with the place where the end part of the course.


Onions put a small amount of cold water, if we want this to its taste and aroma passed into broth (eg. Cooking soup). If you cook the onion as a separate dish, throw it on the boiling water - thanks to retain most of their juices. Onions cook for 10 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Immediately after setting with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To check whether the onion is cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, it is ready.


After cooking, drain off the onion. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.


Onion served cold or heated in addition to dinner.

Bon appétit!
