Stewed Tomatoes with Ginger

  • SERVINGS: 10
  1. 3 large garlic cloves, smashed
  2. One 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and smashed
  3. 2 rosemary sprigs
  4. 2 thyme sprigs
  5. 1/2 cup olive oil
  6. 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced

  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  10. 2 tablespoons water
  11. 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  1. Wrap the garlic, ginger, rosemary and thyme in cheesecloth and tie in a bundle. Heat the olive oil in a large casserole. Add the onion and cook over moderately low heat until softened, about 10 minutes.
