“I purchased a onion and garlic paste years ago in California and tried to duplicate and I think I finally have. It is very strong in taste and flavor. I throw it in with margerine or butter as a quick sauce for pasta. But I use quite frequently.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the onions and water in medium saucepan.
  2. and simmer about 8 minutes.Take off burner.
  3. Put garlic,cilantro,olive oil, basil,vinegar,and salt in blender and pulse until blended.
  4. Put blended ingredients into saucepan with the cooked onions , stir and simmer about 10 minutes more , stir constantly. Do not burn. Cool and refrigerate. I refrigerate 24 hours, the flavors seem to intensify.
  5. Note: I make enough to hot pack in 1/2 pint jars.Make sure the paste is very hot and make sure your jars are hot as well as the seals. Then I can use any time.
