1/2 cup shallots, minced
2 Tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon ground ginger

1 Tablespoon stone-ground mustard

Directions: 

In a medium-sized skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil and saute the minced shallots and garlic over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the spices and saute 1 minute more. Remove the skillet from the heat and place mixture into a food processor.
