Low-Amine Onion Sauce with Gluten-Free Quinoa Noodles

An alternative to cream- or tomato-based pasta sauces is a simple onion sauce. An added benefit to tomato-free onion sauces is that they’re great if you’re sick. Onions create heat in your body, and help you burn out the bad stuff. Since I’m still under the weather (going on two weeks now), I made myself a giant batch of this onion sauce with my gluten-free quinoa noodles.

6 C sweet onion, diced

2 1/2 C red onion

15 cloves garlic, pureed with 1/4 C water

1 C loosely packed parsley leaves, minced

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp cornstarch

3 C beef broth

1 tsp ascorbic acid

1/2 tsp Sichuan peppercorns, crushed

4 Tbsp butter (or butter substitute. I use soy-free Earth Balance butter substitute)

  • Heat large saucepan to medium high. Add butter. Add onions.
  • Cook until onions start to sweat. Add garlic, parsley, and salt. Cook until onions are cooked through.

  1. Yum – this does sound really good! Unfortunately, I can’t have corn and all the quinoa pasta I have found has corn in it … boo !! So no pasta for me, but I think that would be good over a baked potato too! :) PS – I also hope you feel better soon!

  2. This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it, especially with sweet spring onions growing around here. @Jane – there are also brown rice pastas, flax pasta if you are grain free, or you could do spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.

    • I love using spaghetti squash as noodles! Aye, there are a ton of different options – and baked potato sounds like a good one, too! I may just have to try that with the last few bites of extra onion sauce that’s left. I have managed to eat about 8 onions today via this sauce. Ha! I feel bad for my boyfriend. LOL.

  4. Awesome! Thank you.

    • I can’t believe I ate all of it in one day. Haha! If you *LOVE* onions like I do… you might want to double up this recipe!

  5. This looks great! I’ve been wanting a safe pasta sauce.

    This is my first time to the site, so forgive me asking a question unrelated to the recipe. I wasn’t sure where else to place it.

    If fresh local meat is frozen right after slaughter, do histamines still develop in the freezer?
