The non-green Side: Dried Apricot & Prune Saute

Let’s face it, we are not always in the mood for ultra greens, such as swiss chard or broccoli. Once in a while it’s very nice to make something a little different – something that enhances a flavor such as perfectly cooked chicken breast. Every single one of our meals has a green factor, whether it’s salad or a vegetable. But for your next dinner, we wanted to share a taste bud explosion with you. Try making our Dried Apricot & Prune Sautee as a side dish to your chicken breast or favorite pork dish, or as a topping which we recommend. The flavors are slightly sweet and subtly tart. The combination of the coconut oil, shallots and spices is just lovely. If you’re going to serve this as a side it will yield 2 servings, as a topping obviously 4.

It is very easy to make; it will create a celebration of your senses, and it will be slightly unconventional – which is always fun! We look forward to your comments and favorite protein pairings! Happy Creating – Jo & Henry


1/2 cup Dried Apricots diced
1/2 cup Dried Prunes diced
1 cup Shallot sliced
1 pinch Sea salt
1 pinch Black pepper
2 tablespoons Coconut oil
1 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Caraway Seed

Heat coconut oil on medium – high (depending on your stove) in saute pan and combine spices, dried apricots, prunes and shallots. Stir often so to ensure not to burn fruit. Cook for about 7 minutes and serve!

This makes an excellent side dish or topping for chicken breast!
