Onion & garlic turn green when sautéed!?

specialk | Dec 21, 2007 08:44 AM

While cooking a massive batch of black bean burritos bound for the freezer , I was sautéing garlic (20 cloves, crushed) and onions (4 large, minced) in olive oil in a Calphalon pan.
While cooking, this 3-ingredient-mixture turned a bright green colour. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?

The only thing I can think of is that I had over processed the garlic and onion in the food processor resulting in a mashed potato consistency.

thanks. Kurt
