Grilled Spring Onions and Garlic
Chop the roots off and peel the outer layer of the bulb off. The stem is usable from the bulb up for 4-6” where the leaves start to branch off.
Place aluminum foil or a grilling pan on your grill. One option is to spray or drizzle olive oil over the onions and garlic to keep them moist. A high heat works well. Rotate the veggies every 5 minutes and cook for approx 15 minutes. A small amount of blackening is an indicator that the natural juices are caramelizing. These are a tasty side dish!
