Chargrilled Spring Onions with Feta, Almonds and Lemon

Chargrilling spring onions brings out a lovely soft mellow onion flavour and they are literally cooked in a few minutes.
They make a lovely side dish to a shared meal.

Yield: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches (approx 12 individual) spring onions
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 cup flaked almonds, lightly toasted
  • small handful crumbled feta
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Wash the spring onions and then trim the very tops of the green leaves and chop off the roots if you prefer.  I like the look of leaving them intact.
Heat a griddle pan or bbq hot plate on high, arrange the spring onions on the plan and add a little drizzle of oil.  Cook for a couple of minutes before turning, the aim is for good colour and also for the spring onions to become tender.  This will take about 5 minutes in total.
Serve sprinkled with almonds, feta and lemon zest and season with salt and pepper.
