  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • ¼ cup port wine or sherry
  • 5 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

    1. Preheat oven to 450°F. In a large Dutch oven, add oil, onions, 1 tablespoon water, thyme and ground pepper. Cover and bake for 30 minutes until the onions are soft and starting to turn brown.
    2. Uncover and continue to cook for another 30 minutes or so, until the onions are golden brown and caramelized.
