Chef Michael Solomonov of Zahav uses these caramelized onions as an essential part of his cooking: Copious amounts of onions are cooked low-and-slow for hours until they're uniformly dark brown and have the consistency of soft butter. Make a large batch and store them in the refrigerator for up to a month to use as a garnish—or with salads, roast chicken, or on toast with ricotta. Here, he's swirled them into sautéed chopped collards, giving the greens a deep, umami-like bittersweet flavor for a simple side dish.
