  • 1 cup sliced leek, white part only
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • Press saute function, select vegetable setting. Set timer for 20 minutes and set temperature to 360º F. Add the olive oil, onions, garlic and salt and pepper to the inner pot and cook stirring until the onions are wilted and translucent, about 8 minutes.
