Place the onion upside down, then make cross-slits. Top with 10 g of butter.
Wrap lightly with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes.
Remove the plastic wrap, flip it over, and drizzle with some soy sauce. Top with the powdered parsley.
Story Behind this Recipe
I looked online for a good way to eat up sweet new harvest onions. At my workplace, I tried microwaving an onion with butter and it was a bit hit!
By making slits in the onion, the butter can really penetrate into it. I used about 1 cm of a regular stick of butter cut into two pieces. When microwaving, the butter will melt down to the bottom, so flip the onion over to coat evenly. Don't use too much soy sauce.
