About this recipe
A deliciously sweet dish using the principles of a french onion soup recipe but takes half the time.
The allicin family are known to be beautifully sweet when cooked (think of roasted garlic, leeks or even pan fried chives). The red onions will permeate this dish with their deep flavour and the peas make it creamy and deliciously satisfying.
