yum {recipe}

whoops! almost missed today's recipe (because i just know the hordes of readers here will go out and make it immediately....). ha!

in any case, this is a super easy, entertaining type of recipe. it's kind of my backup food to make when i don't actually have anything in my house to offer.

we used to make this A LOT when we lived in italy and we named it (cleverly) "yum". because... it's... yummy. it's what you say when you eat it. it's quite possibly one of the dumbest and embarrassing names we could have called it, but it's the truth. so there.

olive oil
2 onions
4 cloves garlic
balsamic vinegar
delicious bread

  1. cut up onion and cook in some olive oil over med/med-high heat
  2. allow it to get soft and brown (this can take 20 minutes to 40 minutes depending on how hungry you are)
  3. add the garlic - diced, minced, sliced, whatever
  4. when it smells delicious (or you just can't wait anymore), pour the mixture into a bowl and add balsamic vinegar and more olive oil

all measurements are totally made up. for a small gathering i might use the 2 onions noted here. maybe up it to 4 if there's a bigger crowd. it really is just whatever i might have on hand. i bet some basil leaves might even be good in there.

the only thing you don't want to do is burn the garlic, but if you keep the heat under the 'high' setting, you should be ok. burnt garlic just tastes kind of bitter.
