Onion thing, so called because one of the children looked at their plate and said they were not going to eat that onion thing.

In a saucepan, place two or three large sliced onions and a dash of EVOO and fry gently until getting soft but no colour. Add garilc if desired. To this, pour in a carton or two, depending on the size, of tomato passat, (sieved, strained tomatoes) S&P. Add dried basil now or fresh basil later. Leave to simmer and bubble on a very low heat until it turns into a satisfying goop and darker in colour, usually about 20 - 30 mins. It should spoon onto a plate, not pour. Fantastic with meats and other veg or in a pitta.

The sweetest carrots ever.

Cut carrots up into whatever shape you want them. Place in a shallow pan that has a tight fitting lid with a dash of water and a knob of butter. Lid on and leave to steam on a low heat for 10-20 mins. I add leeks with mine. Fantastic.
