Use Them in Salad Dressing
Shallots are gentler than onions, so they're quite ideal for salad dressings. They'll give your dressing more of a nip than a bite. You could also just slice up some shallots and layer them on top of a bed of greens.
Make Vegan Gravy
Who doesn't love vegan gravy on mashed potatoes? You can use shallots or onions, but shallots will produce a more delicate flavor. Just don't skip them!
