PREPARATION

  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan.  Add onion and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes.  Add garlic and cook one more minute.

  • Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Puree in a food processor, blender or with a potato masher.  Taste for seasonings.  Add more salt if necessary and hot sauce if you like a kick.
  • Put in serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Serve with pita chips and veggies, or spread on toasted bread.

Prep time, 15 minutes; cook time, 30 – 45 minutes; makes about 1 1/2 cups.
