Ingredients

  • 2  Pounds  Yukon gold potatoes, cut into ½ inch dice
  • 5  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • medium onions, diced
  • 1  Teaspoon  plus ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4  Cup  vegetable broth
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  garlic powder

Directions

In a large pot, cover potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 18 minutes, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain well and return to the pot.

While potatoes are cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a medium sauté pan, set over medium heat. Add onions and 1 teaspoon salt and sauté for 10-12 minutes until softened and browned, stirring constantly.  

Add the onions to the drained potatoes and mash with a potato masher until broken down. Stir in the vegetable broth, garlic powder, remaining olive oil, and remaining salt. Serve immediately.

Caramelized Onion Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.
