Stephanie Alexanders fast winter salad

Preparation time
15 Minutes
Cooking time
Serves
4

Pair Stephanie Alexander's healthy and colourful salad with a restrained white to avoid clashing with the range of flavours – Pinot Grigio or Vermentino, or Rosé as an alternative.

Ingredients

2–3 large onions, peeled, halved and sliced

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

400g can chickpeas, drained

½ radicchio head, sliced

Extra virgin olive oil

1 red capsicum, roasted, peeled and sliced or 4 roasted piquillo peppers from jar or can, sliced

2 handfuls baby spinach leaves, stalks removed

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Large handful mung bean sprouts

2 handfuls rocket leaves, stalks removed

Fried shallots, to scatter
 

Method

1. For the caramelised onion: Mix sliced onion and olive oil in microwave-safe dish with well-fitting lid and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Remove dish and lid and stir onion well. Repeat 3 times until onion has collapsed and is soft and golden.

2. Tip onion and oil into a heavy-based frying pan and cook on medium heat, stirring every few minutes. Continue until the onion is a rich, golden brown. Let cool and set aside. 

3. For the salad: Warm drained chickpeas in a clean frying pan over low heat and stir in the caramelised onion until well combined. 

4. In a separate pan, sauté the sliced radicchio in a little olive oil until softened, then add to chickpea pan with the capsicum strips (or piquillo peppers). Pile spinach into pan and cover with lid for 2 minutes until wilted. 

5. Tip everything into a deep bowl and season well with salt and pepper. Stir in mung bean sprouts and add rocket and fried shallots to turn into salad before serving.
