Recipe Ingredients for 100 Plan - Brussel Sprouts with Caramelized Onion

1 onion, quartered and evenly sliced (not too thick)
1 c Brussels sprouts, outside leaves removed and thinly sliced (leeks could be subbed)
1/2 t sea salt
1 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 t black pepper
1/4 c kidney beans (optional)

Recipe Directions for 100 Plan - Brussel Sprouts with Caramelized Onion

  1. Begin to caramelize the onion in a large non-stick pan. Online tutorials here and here. Keep pan at medium-high temperature. Be sure to monitor the onion pieces carefully and stir fairly regularly to make sure that they do not burn. Do not rush! (Note: I attempted to do this without oil, and it took significantly longer as I had to wait for the water to evaporate before the caramelization process began.)

  2. Stir in the sea salt.

  3. As the onions begin to brown, stir in the hashed Brussels sprouts.

  4. When the onions and Brussels sprouts are both completely caramelized, stir in the vinegar, black pepper, and kidney beans. (Note: many of the recipes I found for this dish included pistachios or almonds. I can not eat tree nuts and had to use a substitute. This recipe, which would require vegan modification, uses lentils.)
