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.

Vegan "Egg" Salad
1 14-ounce package medium-firm tofu

1/2 red or sweet onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

Add tofu to a non-reactive bowl and mash with a fork. Fold in celery and onion.

Stir together mayonnaise, mustard, yeast, vinegar and spices in a separate bowl. Add to tofu mixture and fold to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. We like to chill the salad for at least an hour before serving.
