Sauteed Onions and Apples with Chard, Spinach and Arugula
If your kids won't eat vegetables, I bet they will like this dish! You can use chard, kale, spinach, arugula, beet greens or collards. Or you can use a combination like I did.
Recipe for two:
1 small apple, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
A nice big handful of greens or your choice, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper
Splash of balsamic vinegar
Put olive oil and butter in a pan over high heat. When the pan is hot and butter foaming, add the onions and shake or stir pan. Then add the apples and season with a nice big pinch of sea salt and pepper.
Cook for about 2 minutes, then reduce heat to low and caramelize. When onions and apples look cooked down (see photo), turn the heat up to medium and add your greens and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Keep stirring the greens to melt them down. Serve when melted...
