  1. frying the onion is not possible for cause of my stomach, but the rest i think is ok. I may put it directly with the rest of the products and bake it that way! Do you think that’s a good idea?

  2. If sauteing the onion is a problem for you, just combine the recipe in a baking dish and bake in the oven as directed. That should work just fine. Enjoy it!
