Green Beans & Red Onions (Freelancing for Robyn Webb)

While I'm out on my vacation in Madrid, Spain, I thought I'd share with you some of the freelance photography I do for Robyn Webb's blog. Here's what happens: Robyn comes up with a recipe featuring a fabulous food find, and then I do the grocery shopping, prepare the recipes, take and edit photographs and post the final write-up. In return, I get to keep the products, eat the food, and get $$ :) Not a bad setup.

Here are a few photographs of Garden Fresh Beans with Truffled Balsamic Red Onions. For the full recipe, click here.


Ooh la la! Have you ever tried roasted red onions? Roasting brings out the onions' natural sweetness. If that wasn't enough, Robyn added truffled balsamic to this recipe. Who can say no to truffles? This dish is great hot, at room temperature, or even eaten straight out of the refrigerator (I used my fingers!).

The caramelization of red onions has brought so much flavors in this dish :)
