  • 2 large sweet or yellow onions sliced
  • 2 tbsp butter or more
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 2 tbsp chives chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Thinly slice the onions, then place them into a large, deep skillet, along with the butter and olive oil.
  • Turn heat to medium-low. Once the butter melts, reduce the heat to low and cook the onions on low for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally until they're soft and golden brown.
  • While onions are caramelizing, chop the chives and set aside and place yogurt in a bowl.
  • Once the onions are *almost* perfect, add the spinach to the skillet and sauté for 1-2 minutes until it's wilted. Transfer the mixture to the bowl with the yogurt and stir to combine.
  • Add chopped chives, salt and pepper and enjoy!


*Calories are per serving and are an estimation 
*If the onions seem to be browning too quickly, add 1-2 tbsp additional butter and reduce heat even lower, stirring a little more frequently. 
*To make this vegan: use dairy-free butter and dairy-free yogurt instead of Greek yogurt
