Our friends at ChefSteps, a food and technology company based in Seattle, are chock-full of cooking tips and tricks that are easy to employ in a home kitchen. Today, they share a dairy-free alternative to cream, to be used in sauces or soups, or in finishing dishes like risotto or paste.
Pureed roasted onions not only eliminate the dairy from your dish — for vegan, lactose intolerant, or simply health-conscious home cooks — but also provides an additional punch of flavor and brightness, and an extra serving of vegetables besides. Blending the whole roasted sweet onions with salt, olive oil, and a little bit of lemon juice yields a velvety smooth and deliciously light puree; you'll want to make extra to keep in the refrigerator, for last minute vegan meals.
