Steamed or roasted, it doesn't matter: I'd much rather them raw and crunchy. Absolutely no idea why that is, but they do taste very different indeed when cooked, and I find them almost inedible. Strange. > Onions, on the other hand, roasted in a pot roast or otherwise are > sublime. Oh yeah. Roasted onions are the BEST. (But then again, I like raw onion too.) But damn you, Erik: now you've got me hankering for roasted onions, and it's only ten to nine in the morning here. Also, I know for a fact that my wife intends to make a chicken stir-fry tonight. Nice, but I somehow doubt she'll work roasted onions into it. Paul.
