Caramelized Onions

I use this recipe as a topping for a dish I make with lentils & rice. It could also be used with roast beef sandwiches or in onion soup, any recipe requiring caramelized onion. My recipe has less sodium and cholesterol. You may substitute veggie broth for the chicken broth; you will need to recalculate the nutrition information then.
