making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Beet, Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onion Flatbread
2 store-bought flatbreads or plain flavored naan
6-8 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
1/2 sweet onion, very thinly sliced
1 small beet, very thinly sliced
Leaves from 1 small sprig fresh rosemary, for garnish
Non-stick cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 375 F and make sure your oven rack is in the middle of the oven. Place flatbreads or naan on a large baking sheet that you have sprayed with cooking spray; this will help the bread crisp up in the oven. Arrange goat cheese, then onion and beets on top of the flatbreads, distributing evenly. Spray again lightly with cooking spray.

Bake for 7-10 minutes or until the cheese has softened and the bread is browning on the edges. Remove from oven, garnish with rosemary leaves, slice and serve immediately.

These nifty and flavorful flatbreads make a great snack, light lunch, or holiday party appetizer. We kept it simple with the toppings, but you can experiment with thinly sliced apples or pears, sun-dried tomatoes or butternut squash, if you like. This recipe makes two flatbreads.
