Serves 6


2 tbsp olive oil
400g red onions, chopped or sliced thinly
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp light brown sugar
1 sprig thyme, leaves


  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and gently fry the red onions with the red wine vinegar for 30 minutes,  turning regularly until softened but not coloured.
  2. Add the sugar, and cook for another 5 minutes until the onions are really tender. Add the thyme leaves and season to taste.
  3. Turn down to a very low heat and simmer to really soften the onions with the lid on for a further 10 to 15 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent them sticking.

Note:  If you double the recipe, it will take longer to cook using slow cooking method.  To speed it up, turn the heat up, but you must keep stirring,
