Directions

  1. Prep - Thinly slice the onion and wash the produce.

  2. Sauté - Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add onions and sauté on low for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft, golden brown and almost sweet tasting.

  3. While onions are still cooking, pour prepared rice or quinoa into the pan and sauté. Let cool for 15 minutes. Season with salt.

  4. Combine Ingredients - Combine grapes and edamame in a large mixing bowl. Add cooled quinoa and walnuts. Whisk water and honey; pour over mixture and stir well.

  5. Serve - Add fresh baby spinach and crumbled blue cheese just before serving.

  6. Enjoy!
