The redish-copper bulbs have a delicate and sweet flavor with a hint of sharpness, while onions bring a more intense heat. You can substitute shallots in nearly any recipe that calls for onions—just make sure you’re using the same volume. (For example, several medium shallots equals about one small yellow onion.) They are beautiful roasted with potatoes. We also love making an onion chutney that we eat with naan. This recipe for caramelized onion chutney you should be able to make with ingredients right from your pantry. Each season we make a few batches of vegetable tempura that is excellent with candy onions. Savor has a list of 50 recipes that use onions so be sure to stock up on these while they are in season!
