Radicchio's slight bitterness is balanced here by the sweetness of the caramelized red onions.

Ingredients

1 red onions, thinly sliced 150 g
1 radicchio (red chicory), thinly sliced 300 g
1 tsp butter, unsalted 5 g
4 tsp olive oil 20 mL
3 chicken sausages 220 g
1 tbsp wine vinegar 15 mL
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 15 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Thinly slice the onions and radicchio. Set aside separately.
  2. Heat the butter and half of the oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions then sauté with frequent stirring until they are softened and golden-coloured, about 20 min.
  3. While the onions cook, prepare the sausages. Prick them in a few spots using a fork then put them in a saucepan. Cover the sausages with water then bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 5 min. Take the sausages out of the water and pat them dry.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in another skillet over medium heat. Add the sausages and sauté 4-5 min, until they become golden-coloured. Turn them a few times while cooking. When they are done, keep them warm while the onions continue to cook.
  5. Add the radicchio to the onions and sauté until it is wilted, about 5 min. Add the two vinegars and cook over medium-high heat until the liquid is absorbed, about 1 min. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the onion-radicchio mixture alongside the sausages.
