Oven Roasted Shallots

Shallots are AMAZING! Did you know…..

  • Shallots have more anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins than onions.
  • They are rich source of flavonoid anti-oxidants.
  • Shallots hold more concentration of vitamins and minerals than onions, especially vitamin A, pyridoxine, folates, thiamin, vitamin C etc. (Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.)
  • They are also more rich in minerals and electrolytes than onions; particularly iron, calcium, copper, potassium, and phosphorus.
  • But most importantly….THEY’RE YUMMY!

I roast my shallots and keep them in the refrigerator for use in salads, sandwiches, soups and sauces.  OK – let’s get roasting!
