Red wined juicy shallots to complete your dish



Another recipe that is simple and can be combined or used as additional to other dishes.
In my childhood home the sauce was different, I decided to use red wine here and add extra nutmeg.
All the ingredients are super healthy and when you will combine them, a great aromatic waves will fill up your kitchen the second you’ll add the wine. (Not to mention the great sound)!
I use it mostly on top of rice but it goes great with baked potatoes, couscous etc…
100% vegan/vegetarian but works perfectly on top of  a good steak.
  • 10-15 shallot onions, whole peeled
  • 10-15 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 0.5-1 dl olive oil
  • 3 dl red wine
  • 3-4 rosemary stalks
  • 3-4 thyme stalks
  • 6-8 bay leaves
  • Black pepper
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt
In a non sticky casserole, heat up the oil.
Add the onions and fry on medium heat till they get brown.
Spread spices and mix well.
Add rosemary, thyme & bay leaves and mix gently.
Add wine, bring to a boil, cover and cook for 20-25 min till soft.
You can add a bit wine in case of using a bigger casserole.
The wine should cover the onion half way.
Serve warm to the table.
