For the soured cream dip
For the stew, heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion and garlic until softened.
Add the remaining stew ingredients and simmer for 6-8 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the stew has thickened.
For the chargrilled red onion, place the onion wedges into a bowl with the oil, vinegar and sugar and stir well.
Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot, then chargrill the red onion wedges for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until lightly charred and softened.
