  • 1 tsp basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 saucepan
  • 1 wooden spoon

Step 2: Fry the onions

Place the saucepan on a medium heat, add the olive oil and butter and allow it to melt. Now add the chopped onions and garlic and stir. Let it cook down for 3-4 minutes until the onions are soft and transparent.
