Today was an incredibly sunny and beautiful spring day. The kind of day that is perfect for grilling. Bryan (that’s my husband) decided that we should have some nice New York style strip loins done on the barbeque with baked potatoes, peaches and cream sweet corn and a side of mushrooms.
Well, as you know, I like to play in the kitchen so instead of just mushrooms we ended up with the following…
balsamic veggie sauté
This would also be a great side to make when car camping too. While we had this with steak it would be completely delicious in a wrap with some grilled chicken and a little provolone cheese.
1 – 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup onion, sliced
2 cups white mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup green pepper, sliced
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
2 cups baby spinach
Heat the olive oil in a medium sized sauté pan. Add the onions and cook until they become translucent and start to show some color. Add the mushrooms and green peppers. Continue to sauté for a few minutes and add the balsamic vinegar. Let simmer until the vinegar reduces by half and then add the tomatoes. Cook for a few more minutes then add the baby spinach, turn off the heat and cover the pan until the spinach wilts.
