Sauteed Apples and Onions


This was once a pioneer favorite. Yes, it sounds weird, but it's delicious. You'll want to have something to go with this that has some protein, like a garden burger or a brown rice packet, both of which you can microwave. Apples and onions only takes about 10 minutes, a few dollars and it's delicious as a topping for rice or even by itself for a light snack.
