Steamed or Baked Onion for an Amazing Twist on Taco Shells and Wraps!

For an interesting twist on a taco shell…try baked or steamed onion. Onion, yes, onion…a large yellow or white onion does the trick! An onion can be prepared in a way that lends to holding other foods and offers an amazing taste and texture when executed correctly. And, believe it or not, this is the easiest recipe in the world and lends to so many healthy applications. So, here is the down-low on how to properly pick, bake and prepare an onion shell.

Here we go!
Pick out large white or yellow onions at the market. The bigger the better for this particular use.
On a cutting board, carefully slice the ends off of both sides and remove the outer papery peel.
Cut the onion in half and then cut the two large halves into halves.
You will have four large pieces. Separate all of the layers from these four pieces.
For the baking method, Place the layers onto a cookie sheet or in a roasting pan and add a bit of water. Cover the sheet or pan with foil and bake under low heat, around 250, until the onion pieces are clear and soft. You want the onion to be super soft.
For the steaming method, place in a large skillet with an inch of water, cover and steam over high heat until soft and transparent.
When the onion pieces are baked or steamed to complete perfection, soft and clear and edible without crunch and mild in flavor, fill each wonderfully warm and tasty onion shell with anything you desire.
Try adding baked fish and a fresh cilantro relish to the onion shell or let your creativity take you to culinary places you never dreamed of! Go for it and enjoy this new way to stay healthy with the versatile and delicious onion!
