Gut Healthy Caramelized Onions


These yummy onions are a match made in heaven with our Mason's Mushrooms blend (however if you don't have any Mason's on hand, try any of the other mushies, they will also work a treat). Particularly delicious on toast (try serving up with some fresh greens and a protein), or as a side to any meal, these onions pair wonderfully with roast meats or pan-fried tempeh.  Warming and hearty, a perfect Festive Season addition!


(this will make two generous cups)


Mason's Mushrooms is a gut-friendly medicinal mushroom blend, containing eight potent immune-supporting mushrooms.



Thanks to the beautiful Heidi Flora for this simple, yet delicious recipe.
