Any soup, stock, or sauce recipe almost always starts out by sauteing onions. The onion is the flavor base to an endless array of dishes. I can't think of a single country or culture that does not use an onion or one of its cousins in their daily cooking. I thought today I would pay tribute to this most versatile of ingredients. Here are 5 recipes that highlight the onion's flavor and make it the star.
