1 lb. white pearl onions, unpeeled
1 lb. red pearl onions, unpeeled
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup low-fat, reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. chopped thyme leaves
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  1. Fill a large pot 2/3 full of water. Bring to boiling. Add the onions and boil for 1 minute. Drain. When cool enough to handle, peel the onions and trim the ends. Discard the peels and trimmings.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the broth and vinegar, cover, and simmer on low for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until glazed. Uncover and add the thyme, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes to reduce and thicken the glaze. Add onions to a bowl to serve.
