Weight Watchers Potatoes with Onions
‘Tis a new year! I suppose I am attempting to get on the “diet” bandwagon, as most people do at the start of a new year. I am starting slow, as I find it much easier to eat healthy as it starts to get warmer out. While it is freezing out, I like to eat comfort food. Luckily, there are a TON of healthy recipes out there that satisfy my winter eating habits.
This recipe for Potatoes with Onions is from Weight Watchers and is found on the Kitch Me website. It is an excellent comforting side dish that goes with just about any main dish from chicken to fish. And its so super simple, that I almost feel bad posting it, haha!!
First you melt your butter (margarine) and add your slices onions. Cook them until soft (about 20 minutes). Then add your diced potatoes, chicken broth, thyme and S+P. The author doesn’t call for it, but I add a bunch of chopped garlic. Cover and reduce the heat to a simmer for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook for an additional couple of minutes until most of the liquid is reduced.
You wouldn’t think onions and potatoes would have so much flavor, but they do! The chicken broth saturates the potatoes, making them soft and super flavorful. The thyme adds a pop of freshness. The onions provide the dish with depth and texture.
