Ultimate Onion Gravy

Well, it seems that Spring has finally arrived. Today I spent a couple of hours walking around Portsmouth in the sun. (Yes, the sun was actually shining). Perhaps this dish would've been more appropriate last week, when it's comforting tastes would've been more necessary. But, anyway, it's still a tasty one.

Serves 2

2tbsp olive oil
2 onions, finely sliced
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 sprig of rosemary, chopped
1tbsp plain flour
1tsp tomato puree
150ml stock, beef or vegetable
2tsp Balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper, to season

Add the olive oil to a frying pan and set over a low heat. Add the onions, garlic and rosemary and gently cook for 15-20 minutes, until the onions of really soft. Add the flour and give it a good stir to cook as much of the onions as possible.

Add the puree and stock, bring to a light simmer and cook for another 15-20 minutes, adding the vinegar for the last few minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve with a thick slice of toasted, homemade bread and a few sausages.
