Description

The new year is a time for simplicity in all aspects of life, which inspires me to make quick and easy meals, such as this salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Large Yellow Onion, Thinly Sliced Into Half-circles
  • 8 ounces, weight Crimini Mushrooms, Thinly Sliced
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Thyme
  • 1 cup Cannellini Beans, Drained And Rinsed
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  • 1 pinch Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 cups (packed) Fresh Spinach Leaves

Preparation

Heat olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add sliced onion and cook until onions begin to soften, stirring occasionally, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add sliced crimini mushrooms and cook until onions are light golden brown and mushrooms are just starting to brown, stirring occasionally. Add dried thyme and cannellini beans. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add minced garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Do not allow the garlic to burn.

Stir in balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and serve the mushroom mixture over a bed of fresh spinach leaves.

This is so easy and good mix of flavors. I love warm salad and I love spinach so this was perfect!

We LOVE this dish! It seems like a lot of food at first, but there are never any left overs.

Nice twist on the spinach salad. I enjoyed the flavors and the caramelized onions. The only change I made was I added an additional tablespoon of balsamic vinegar as we like lots of tang in our salads :)
