Does grating an onion change it's flavor?

Snorkelvik | Jul 20, 2011 07:17 AM

I tried to make a zucchini pie last night - really a crustless quiche with 4 cups shredded zucchini, 2 cups mozz, 3 eggs, etc..... I figured since i have the grater out, why don't I grate the onion so it melts into the pie.

Well, the pie tastes a bit bitter to me. The only seasoning I added was some marjoram, dash of cayenne, and S&P.

I expected the onion to add some sweetness. I'm tempted to buy 4 more zucchini & see if it tastes better with a finely diced onion instead. Or you all could clue me in. Thanks!
