Red onions have quercetin which seems to be good for you

So, I'm going to play with recipes that normally use white onions. Today it is sauteed onions with red onions. Tommorrow it is red lentil wat with red onions.

Do you do any adjustments when using red onions instead of white in a recipe?

I never before considered the visual appeal of red vs white onions, so this seems like a fun new thing to play with.

Do you have any good red onion recipes?

There really wasn't all that much out there on the web except the usual salsa and pickled red onions. Or if there are recipes, the stuff in there would seem to cancel the health benefits.

In the first link are a few recipes i found that sound good, different and healthy .. ish. Any other ideas.
