    1 TBS olive oil
    1 large onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
    20 small or 10 large cloves garlic, peeled (leave whole)
    1 cup vegetable stock
    1 lb new potatoes (red skinned) cut into chunks
    1/2 tsp dried rosemary leaves
    1/4 cup pitted, coarsely chopped black olives (optional)
    1/4 tsp salt

    OPTION: Instead of potatoes, use 1 lbs carrots cut into 1 inch chunks

    Standard Stovetop directions:


    1. Heat the oil in a 3 quart saucepan and saute the onions and garlic until the onions are soft, about 2 minutes.

    2. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Add the potatoes, rosemary, optional olives and salt

    3. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the potatoes (or carrots) are tender, about 8-12 minutes.

    4. Serve the mixture in small bowls or lift out the solid ingredients with a slotted spoon and serve then on a plate, reserving any leftover liquids for cooking other recipes.

    Pressure cooker directions:
    1. Heat the oil in the cooker and saute the onions and garlic until the onions are soft, about 2 minutes.

    2. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Add the potatoes, rosemary, optional olives and salt

    3. Lock the lid in place and over high heat bring to high pressure. Lower the heat just enough to maintain high pressure an dcook for 5 minutes. Reduce the pressure with a quick-release method. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you to allow any excess steam to escape.

    4. Serve the mixture in small bowlss or lift out the solid ingredients with a slotted spoon and serve then on a plate, reserving any leftover liquids for cooking other recipes.

    The garlic becomes sooooo sweet and this is really good.

    This serves 4-6 (but I don't know what size portions).

    Serves 4 size portions = 3 pts(for potatoes)
    Serves 6 size portions = 1 pt

    Thanks so much for the recipe!! And for calculating the points.

    I'm going to make this and take some to my 90-year-old aunt who was born in Spain and loves potatoes and garlic!
