2 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp salt


  1. Saute: Saute the onions and garlic in olive oil for 3-5 minutes or until the onions are translucent and the garlic is fragrant.

  3. Boil: Bring to a boil covered and then reduce to a low rolling boil, uncovered (a little more than a simmer) for an additional 25 minutes.
