2/3 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup celery
2/3 teaspoon minced garlic

Mix oil with flour in a 4-cup measuring bowl. Microwave uncovered on HIGH for 6 minutes. Stir and cook another 30–60 seconds on HIGH till the color of mahogany.

Now you can add your chopped vegetables, stir well, and “sauté” them on HIGH for another 5 minutes till soft but not brown.

Now, before stirring, pour oil off top. Add hot tap water, stirring till smooth. Beautiful! And it freezes for later use.
