Have you tried the blender? After blending it, how about you try taking some of that blended mush and add more water and blend again, until it is dilute enough. Experiment with that.

Another idea is the centrifuge. After you blended it, you want to get the solids out of the crushed onion and water mixture, right? When it is dilute enough (add enough water) so that in the centrifuge, spin it for a long time, until the solid particles fall to the bottom.

I'm not sure if the centrifugation would work out because of how massive the particles are. But try it! And good luck!
