It had a very earthy taste at first but that’s only because I didn’t add enough onion. Don’t be shy adding cheese and a little extra seasoning to this dish for a little extra kick. The onions went well with the avocado and the spinach was a nice finish. Over all, a healthy and easy dish and would definitely recommend.

Yummy and easy to make. The only time-consuming step was the onions, which takes around 40 minutes. I also ended up using less avocado.

Carmelized onions 👍🏼👍🏼yummy! I added chopped mushrooms while I was sautéing the spinach. I salted that mixture otherwise I think it would have been too bland.

Extremely pleased with the turnout! I included cheese and boneless breast in my son's being that he's not a fan of onions, spinach nor avocado. Was a hit in our home and I'm sure I will make it again and again!!!!

loved it! I added some sauteed shrimp and it was a big hit! It was first time making caramelized onions as well. Worth the work (wait) especially if you add a protein to it.

This was delicious with the caramelized onions adding a deep, rich flavor. I used a different cheese mixture using what I had on hand-shredded sharp cheddar and part-skim mozzarella.
