We liked this a lot. The spinach and caramelized onion had wonderful flavor. Served with whole wheat couscous which worked very well.
Very good, family favorite now!
What a great idea spikexyz.
I would assume the long cooking time is so that the onions become carmelized - yummy!
Onions take a long time to get to a golden brown. I usually saute 3 lbs onions at a time for about 40 minutes, lay them out on a flat metal sheet, freeze them and place them in a zip lock bag. Then I break off a chunk whenever a recipe calls for cooked onion.
