Fair warning, if you are among the allium-averse I advise steering clear of this particular recipe. This goes out to all the other onion lovers out there, you know who you are. Come spring, I can't get enough of 'em and if you're anything like me,
this recipe'll do you proud.
Spring and sweet onions, tossed in a lemon-pepper dressing, roasted to beautifully soft perfection, tossed with brown rice and topped with, you guessed it, more spring onions.
ALL THE ONIONS. FOREVER. Alliumania. Get on board.
