Sage Onion Compote

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Elly in Canada

This savoury compote is delicious with a grilled, pan-fried or broiled steak. I have prepared it for serving with BBQ hamburgers, a nice change from the usual burger toppings!!

Top Review by Barefoot Beachcomber

My family was here last night for our famous Hamburger Night, and I made this compote for a topping. We all liked it, although some thought it would be better without the almonds! A nice colour, a nice tang, and quick to assemble. A keeper. Thanks Elly!
