Sweet Onion, Greens, and Grits

Another South-inspired meal. Was talking to a patient today raised in the South, and all that talk of greens and cornbread got me craving. Well, nothing like some sweet onions sautéed up to make this meal tick. It could also be a side item or you could add in some shrimp or tofu to make it more substantial. I steamed a butternut squash and then added that in to make this more filling!
You need:

1 sweet onion chopped

1 tomato chopped

1 large bunch beet greens chopped

1 bunch kale chopped

Sesame oil 1 tsp

Coconut vinegar 1tbs

1/2 lemon squeezed 

3tbs chopped fresh parsley 

salt and pepper to taste

Grits, cooked to preference (i make in a rice cooker, or follow package instructions)
Sauté onion in the sesame oil for about 5min, until slightly witlted, then add your other ingredients (except parsley and lemon) to the pan, over medium heat. Sauté for another 10min or so, until greens reach your desired texture. Last add parsely and lemon as you turn off the heat. Mix well. Serve over grits and enjoy!!
