Cipollini Tian

Cipollini Tian

Cipollini are small, sweet onions. If you don’t have any, use small onions, unpeeled, instead.


  • 2 lbs Cipollini onions, skin-on
  • 2 tsp black pepper, cracked
  • bay leaves
  • 6 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • Splash olive oil for finishing


  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 325°F. Place unpeeled onions, bay leaf and ½ the olive oil in a bowl. Salt and pepper. Mix well.

  2. 2

    Spread vegetables evenly and attractively on a roasting dish and sprinkle with remaining olive oil.

  3. 3

    Place the roasting dish in the center rack of the oven. Roast until almost cooked, between 1-1¼ hours.  Pour balsamic vinegar onto the onions and cook 10 minutes more.

  4. 4

    Garnish with parsley leaves and a splash of olive oil.
