  • Cooking time: 50 minutes

  • 3 medium onions, peeled and quartered
  • 1 bulb garlic, halved

  3. In the same frying pan add the rest of the olive oil and add the onions, garlic rosemary, oregano and red pepper flakes IF using and cook for 4-5 minutes until slightly caramelized. Add the sherry, season with salt and freshly ground pepper and cook for 2 minutes until slightly reduced.
