  • Continue cooking over medium heat until all water is absorbed (about 20 minutes).

  • Meanwhile, add olives and EVOO to a large iron skillet.

  • Cook onions over low heat , stirring occasionally until they are slightly browned (be careful not to increase heat as this will lead to burning.

  • When done, remove onions from heat and set aside.

  • In the same skillet, sauté broccoli and mushrooms.

  • Add spinach at the end, and sauté until wilted.

  • Remove veggies and set aside.

  • Melt butter in the skillet.
