Okay, this is one of those recipes where I didn’t bother to get out the measuring devices. True confession, I was actually trying to make devilled eggs and got carried away with the yogurt. So here’s how you can whip up an easy salad for a hot summer night.
Serves 4 servings - 4 net carbs per serving
I sometimes double upon on this recipe so I can have them the next day over steak.
The carb count that Meal Planner Pro gives is not the net carb count. Be sure to use the net carb count I give in the serving size section.
- 1 teaspoon cooking oil or extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 medium onion (about 2 ½-inches in diameter), peeled and sliced
- 4 cups sliced mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat butter or oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onions and a small pinch of pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and a small pinch of pepper. Continue cooking without stirring for two minutes. Add vinegar, stir and continue sautéing until vegetables are browned and the vinegar has caramelized, about four to five minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Don’t add salt while cooking or the vegetables won’t caramelize, they’ll steam as the salt releases their juices. Pile veggies on top of the steak.
Make Ahead: Make extra onions to use in sandwiches, or on top of a burger, a green salad ... Remove the extra onions before adding the mushrooms. Or, just go ahead and double up on the entire recipe as Balsamic Mushrooms are great on sandwiches, burgers, and salads.
