Sauteed greens w/caramelized onions, prunes & goat cheese

August 30, 2011

Author Notes: I think this dish could win over any green-hater, with sweet notes from the prunes and caramelized onions!

While I used a mixture of kale and beet greens, you could use whatever you have on hand!

Serves: 2-3


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red onion
  • 8 cups roughly torn greens (I used kale and beet greens)
  • 1/3 cup chopped prunes
  • 1/4 cup chopped, toasted walnuts
  • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
