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.

Marinated Tofu and Grilled Veggie Sandwiches
4 whole grain or seeded buns, split
1 14oz. package of extra-firm tofu, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 red bell pepper, seeded, roasted and cut into strips
1/2 zucchini, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 sweet onion, cut into half-moons
1/2 cup carrots, shredded
8 red or green lettuce leaves
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
4 tablespoons store-bought hummus
Salt and pepper, to taste
Marinate tofu slices in soy or tamari in the refrigerator for at least one and up to two hours.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium. Add olive oil and grill onions, zucchini and tofu until beginning to turn crisp and brown, approximately five minutes on each side. Remove from pan and set aside. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In the same pan, add split rolls and grill split-side down for a minute, until beginning to brown. Remove from pan and spread one tablespoon of hummus on each of the four rolls.

Distribute the tofu, grilled onions, bell pepper, zucchini, lettuce and carrots on the bottoms of the split buns. Cover with the bun tops. Serve immediately or wrap in wax paper and serve within 4-5 hours.
