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.

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

  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.) 😀
