Spread sprouts evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 20-30 min or until they are browned and starting to blacken on the tips.

While sprouts are roasting, cut onion into 1/4ā€ slices and caramelize on med/low heat with a tsp of olive oil and a pinch of salt, stirring occasionally. Remove when onions are thoroughly broken down and starting to brown (20 min).
