1 white onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 tablespoon butter (or oil)

4.Once the mixture reaches a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and close the lid of the pot. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
5.Remove the lid, add the fresh mint and continue to stir for another 3-5 minutes until the mixture thickens to desired consistency.
6.Serve in a soupbowl, pour over pasta or rice, or use as a dip for toasted bread.
