Tried It Out Thursday: Broccoli with Carmelized Onions & Garlic

A few weeks ago I ran across this delicious recipe over at Debbi Does Dinner Healthy & Low Calorie and it looked so delicious.  She has lots of incredible, not to mention healthy recipes and she is so amazing!!!  This one did not let me down.  YUM!! I adapted it just a bit by adding zucchini.
Broccoli/Zucchini With Caramelized Onions & Garlic
1 large sweet onion, sliced
1 lb. broccoli, broken up into bite sized pieces
1 small zucchini, sliced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar (I used 2)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 Tablespoon butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
Add oil to a pan, saute onion until caramelized on medium heat, about 20 minutes.  Add vinegar, garlic, zucchini, broccoli and butter and cook for about 8-10 minutes until veggies are steamed.  Add salt and pepper to taste. 
** My Grandma always said to add just a pinch of sugar to your onions when caramelizing them.  It will help bring out the natural sugars in them. 

Thanks Debbi for an incredible dish!!
