- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or marjoram
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 or 6 minutes, or until translucent. Add the garlic and stir for 1 minute longer. Add the cream, lower the heat to medium-low, and cook for about 3 minutes, or until the cream thickens and reduces slightly.
Remove from the heat, stir in the thyme, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Let cool completely before using.
