Perfectly Cooked Onions

I sprinkle my onions liberally with salt. Since I don't really eat processed foods, I don't worry about consuming too much salt. If you need to watch your salt intake, use less. And if you can eat dairy, go ahead and just use 2 teaspoons of butter instead of the ghee, coconut oil, and olive oil here!


1/2 teaspoon ghee

1/2 teaspoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 small to medium yellow onion, sliced

sea salt, to taste


  1. Heat ghee, coconut oil, and olive oil in a pan on medium-low heat. Add onions, sprinkle liberally with salt (I use about 1/4 teaspoon) and allow to cook for about 8 minutes, until the onions become translucent.
  2. Turn the onions, and cook another 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
