Veteran – Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

One of my all time favorite foods are POTATOES, in any form.  I am always on the look out for new potato recipes that my children will eat.  I found a recipe and when I added the carmelized onions…it became fabulous.  We had this recipe for dinner with fresh corn on the cob and steamed kale.  Hope you enjoy!

Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Onions


2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 large onion, diced (2 cups) I diced the onion pretty small knowing my kids would prefer them better.

2 Tbs. ground cumin

½ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)

½ cup unflavored rice milk

2 Tbs. minced fresh thyme



1. Boil potatoes in enough water to cover 25 minutes, or until soft.

2. Meanwhile, sautè onion in 5 TBS. water or oil (your preference), cumin, salt, and cayenne in skillet over low heat 30 minutes, or until browned. Stir in rice milk and thyme.

3. Drain potatoes, and mash. Whisk onion mixture into potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
