renegade onions now in my tummy

(with a little cleaning...)

(cleaned up and ready to eat for chopping!)

i dont know if they are in the soil already, for sure a few have been "transplants" that i placed lovingly in various pots at the bottom of our stairs but we have onions! it is crazy, they seem to be in each of the plants i have at the bottom of the stairs, anywhere from 1 to 3 onions in a pot!
over the past 6 months, i have started to see little green shoots poke out and just this past week i have waited until i saw some of them look strong and much bigger (especially after the rain!). i have started growing garlic recently by simply planting garlic that had green shoots popping out (which are a little bitter if you cook them).

(one of the strong sprouts that we harvested-growing in our passion fruit pot)

(random pot that i also planted garlic that sprouted in the kitchen)

  • 1-2 # mushrooms (i did a mix of crimini and white)
  • olive oil
  • salt (or spicy salt)
  • handful of onions sliced, green parts and all
  • 1/4 c.white wine vinegar
  • 1-3 cloves garlic, sliced
wash and trim the mushrooms, if they are a little big chop them in 1/2.
in a large pan, add olive oil and saute the garlic for a minute, add the mushrooms cooking for another 5 min. add the onions and the vinegar and salt and place a lid on it and simmer for 10-15 minutes....SUPER GOOD!
