To start, finely dice the onion and émincé the garlic.
Next, heat a large heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the oil and sauté the onions for about 5 minutes or so. *Note: For plant-based, use a non-dairy butter such as Earth Balance or omit the oil all together and dry-sauté the onions with a bit of stock or water.
At this point, jump ahead to Step 2.
Once the onions are translucent and just starting to take on nice color, add the garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds.
