Grilled Spring Onions

Spring onions are delicious on the grill – they turn sweet and a bit creamy, adding lots of flavor alongside roast meats or as part of a grilled vegetable platter.  Tender sweet spring onions take on delicious charred, complex flavors when grilled. Cook them for less time to preserve their fresh flavor, or a little longer for more sweetness.

  1. Trim any wilted greens at the top of the spring onions and cut the root off – being careful to cut right at the bottom so the bulb stays together.
  2. Brush spring onions with olive oil or vegetable oil.
  3. Put spring onions on a medium hot grill and cook, turning once, covered if possible, until grill marks appear on both sides and the spring onion is tender all the way through, about 15 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste and spritz with lemon juice, if you like.
