Dinners at my house are often prepared during the day when the kids are at kindy or school. However, if I don’t get time and have to manage it when both are at home with me then it must be something that’s quick, easy or set and forget!
This dish was one of those ‘I need dinner now’ recipes and after receiving lovely feedback from my recipe testing team on it I thought I best share it for any one else looking for that easy but delicious meal.
185g (1 large) brown onion, peeled and halved
3 large garlic cloves, peeled
