Onion, Mushroom and Spinach Saute (For Two)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Cookin-jo

Getting more spinach into our diet is something I've been working on lately, but not everyone likes just plain spinach. This recipe adds spinach to fried onions and mushrooms. The balsamic vinegar is wonderful but substitute a splash of lemon juice if you like. Easily doubled.

Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game and this is such an easy and delicious recipe. I followed the instructions except I only had portabella mushrooms so I sliced two up (I also removed the gills) and added to the mixture. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting.
