ingredients Olive Oil 1 Onion (small diced) 3 Garlic cloves (sliced thinly) 1 tablespoon Fennel Seeds Salt and Pepper to taste
instructions Place a heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat and add about 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Once the oil shimmers and is hot, add the onions and garlic to the pan and toss to coat.
