The traditional way of sautéeing onions until brown (caramelizing) destroys many of their health benefits. Healthy Sautéeing brings out their sweet flavor and preserves the maximum number of nutrients.

Recipe Ingredients for Healthy Sauteed Onions

1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
2 fl. oz Organic Chicken Broth (Low Sodium)
3 tbsp Olive Oil

Recipe Directions for Healthy Sauteed Onions

  1. 1. Slice onions and let them sit for at least 5 minutes to enhance their health-promoting benefits.

  2. 2. Heat 2 TBS broth over medium heat in a stainless steel skillet.

  3. 3. When broth begins to steam, add onions and cover for 3 minutes. The onions will release a small amount of liquid. Uncover, add another 2 TBS broth and continue to stir for 4 minutes, leaaving the lid off.

  4. 4. Remove from heat when onions become translucent, about 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the slices. If you would like your onions more tender, cook for 2 to 3 more minutes, uncovered, and stir frequently.

  5. 5. Transfer to a bowl. For the best flavor toss onions with olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste while they are still hot.
