ONION, CARAMELIZE IN DRY PAN
To caramelize chopped onion quickly without butter or oil, place a pan on medium to medium high heat. Place cold chopped or minced onion into pan before it is heated up. Leave until you start to smell them, check to see if browning, but do not stir onions until bottom is golden brown. Then spread so onion covers the entire bottom again until golden brown. This process should be watched as all stoves are slightly different, but you should notice browning in less than 5 minutes and enough browning less than 8 minutes. Use to flavor as an added boost of onion such as a vegan patty or bean cake.
