A delicious ‘cream’ sauce made from yellow onions, water, olive oil, and a few spices; allergy-friendly, easy to make, and healthy to eat!
In a sense, this is a repeat recipe.
I originally posted it with my Butter-Free, Milk-Free Creamy Scalloped Potatoes, but I really really feel like it deserves its own devoted piece of the blog.
I’ve been using this delicious puree in many a-casserole. That includes a chicken and wild rice ditty that I’m hoping will soon make an appearance.
Whenever I make that particular recipe, everyone goes back for seconds and even thirds! It’s a big hit here.
It’s also been awhile since I made a video!
I started mulling it over on Wednesday, and resolved to get one done the next day.
These types of resolutions are typically in vain, as it often depends on the temperament of a certain someone…
Wouldn’t you know it, though, daddy came to the rescue and babysat our little devil.
Natalie was a great little helper and makes a couple of unexpected appearances in the video. I hope you enjoy the following tutorial for onion cream sauce!
