This recipes calles for 1 low-sodium chicken bouillon cube per onion, but you can substitute 1 low-sodium beef boullion cube for more of a “French onion soup” taste.

Serves 4 Cook Time 10 Minutes

4 large Vidaila onions
4 Tbsp Smart Balance or I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
4 cubes Low-sodium chicken (or beef) bouillon cubes


  1. Preheat the grill on medium.
  2. Peel the outer layer off the onions. Slice a small section off of one end of each onion and make a hole in the center.
  3. Fill the center of each onion with 1 bouillon cube and 1 tablespoon of butter substitute. Replace the top of the onion and wrap each onion in aluminum foil.
  4. Grill for 1 hour over indirect heat with a closed lid. When done, remove the tops and cut them into bite size pieces and place them in a serving bowl with all the cooked juices.

Recommended for patients on the Modified Profast (Fast and Flexible) Program,  Nutriplus (Balance Your Pyramid) Program or Maintenance Program.
