  4. Add one tablespoon of olive oil to the bowl and sautee garlic and onion with 100C, Speed 1 for 5 minutes. Onion should be transparent.

  6. Taste the sauce. If it lacks a 'bite', try adding another squeeze of lemon or ½ teaspoon of salt.
  7. Use sauce immediately or store in fridge for up to a week. You can warm this sauce up gently in the microwave.
