Cute little cipolline (chip-oh-lee-nee) onions are a fun way to add oniony flavor. Originally from Italy, these petite flying-saucer shaped onions have a sweet, delicate flavor that’s terrific in stews and braises. Try them in the recipe for Braised Asparagus & Cipolline Onions, or throw a few into the mix the next time you make a pot roast. They’re also good baked until tender and sprinkled with a little Parmesan, or blanched and threaded onto skewers and grilled.
