Sauteed Onions and Apples with Chard, Spinach and Arugula

It's the Fall, so cook with apples, pears and winter squash....

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...

Bon Appetit!
