Roasted Onions and Green Beans..or Beans kura;)

This recipe had me in splits. I came across this when I was reading somewhere about the nutritional benefits of Onions ;) Another reminder to the world about the evolved Indian cuisine?:D


Roasted Red Onions and Green Beans

Makes 8 servings

5 medium red onions
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4-1/2 tsp black pepper
2 lbs green beans or French green beans, trimmed

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Peel the onions and cut into lengthwise quarters. Toss with the vinegar and olive oil. Add the salt and pepper.
3. Place on a baking sheet lightly oiled with cooking spray. Roast the onions until golden brown, about 20 minutes, then sprinkle lightly with water and continue roasting another 20 minutes.
4. Rinse the green beans in cold water, then drain. Place in a covered dish and microwave until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.
5. Combine the roasted onions with the steamed green beans. Adjust seasoning, if needed, and serve.

Another interesting thought..

I sometimes wonder what I would do if I met someone exactly like me:D In fact I wonder a lot of times:) Whenever I don't like something that anyone does, or when I meet someone who is very very different from me, I cannot but wonder what would happen when I finally meet someone who is just like me. No, I haven't seen another person with my exact same habits/manners/ambition etc. *ALL* matching perfectly in my 26 years of existence:D I wonder, would I really like that person because she would have everything in her that I like (yes it has to be a her, for her to be like me right?) in me, or would I absolutely hate her because then I would begin to see what I don't like in me:D We all are blind to things which would annoy us in others that we possess ourselves, that is for sure, else the world would be Utopic:)

Maybe when I meet someone like me, I will begin to see all the stuff in me that I would hate if I saw in someone else;) And maybe I would become a better person...
