When onions and garlic are chopped, they release an important enzyme that increases their health-boosting properties like lowering risks of heart disease and cancers. Leaving the cut onions and garlic for 10 minutes before cooking allows the enzyme to activate phytonutrients. Once formed, these phytonutrients (plant compounds which enhance health) are stable and the onions and garlic can be cooked on low to medium heat for about 15 minutes.
