Slow Cooker Potatoes with Onion

I am sure a trend is starting to emerge that I really like using a slow cooker. I just find them to simplify the whole making dinner fiasco. Prepare your food, throw it in a slow cooker for a few hours and voila! Easy dinner or side dish!


I particularly like mini potatoes, so this recipe really hits the spot for me. And the potatoes are perfectly tender!

Slow Cooker Potatoes with Onion

  • 4 cups yellow mini potatoes (16-20 potatoes)
  • 4 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/2 of a medium-sized onion
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of sea salt (you can omit this if you wish)

Rinse the potatoes and throw them into a medium sized slow cooker.


Cut up the onion and add them to the slow cooker.


Sprinkle the paprika, garlic and butter into the cooker. Stir and place the lid on the cooker.


Cook the potatoes on high for 4 hours or low for 7-8 hours, stirring every so often, ensuring the potatoes are well coated.


Once fully cooked, serve.

  1. I love this recipe. Soooo simple! Question, though, I’ve always wanted to calculate nutritional info for some recipes I make, and I really like that you did it. How would I do this? (Also, I confess: I love my slow cooker, too.) 😀
