Curly Endive With Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms

1 T olive oil
1 large yellow onion, cut in half, then sliced
1 cup sliced crimini mushrooms
2 heads curly endive, chopped
freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

Over medium low heat bring olive oil to a shimmer and add sliced onions. Cook slowly, stirring often, until onions are golden brown (about 40 minutes). Remove from skillet, retaining any remaining liquid.  Add mushrooms to skillet, along with enough oil to keep them from sticking, if necessary. Increase burner to medium high heat to sear the mushrooms. Add greens to skillet and return caramelized onions. Cook, stirring frequently, until greens have wilted, about 15 minutes. Season with black pepper.
