Recipe from the WebMD Weight Loss Clinic. I haven't made this so I'm guessing at the prep time. I want this in my cookbook so I'm posting it to share.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 1⁄2 cups finely chopped onions (about 1 large)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried thyme (2 tablespoons of chopped fresh thyme can be used)
- 3 teaspoons minced garlic
