Health Highlights


6 cup slices Sweet onion
1/2 cup Vegetable stock/broth, low sodium
2 tsp Maple syrup, pure
227 gm Button mushrooms (halved or quartered)
454 gm Green/yellow string beans, raw (trimmed)
1/2 tsp Thyme, fresh (chopped fresh or use dried)
1 pinch Sea salt, fine (to taste)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)
2 tbsp Sliced almonds (toasted)


Place onions in a large nonstick skillet with 1 tablespoon of bone broth. Cook over low heat, covered for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of bone broth at a time to onions, as needed, to prevent sticking. Cook until very tender and golden, stirring occasionally.  In the last minute of cooking, add maple syrup. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.

In another large skillet, cook mushrooms over medium heat and add enough bone broth (1 to 2 tablespoons at a time) to prevent sticking.

Stir in green beans, thyme, and the remaining broth. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered for 6 to 8 minutes or until beans are crisp and tender. Stir in onions. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in toasted almond slices.
