This dish is so tasty you will want to make extra.
Makes 1 serving


• Cooking spray
• 1 teaspoon olive oil
• 2 sweet or Vidalia onions, thickly sliced
• ½ teaspoon coriander
• ¼ teaspoon cumin
• ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
• 4 ounces jarred tomato sauce (optional: low-sodium variety)
• ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
• 1 tablespoon raisins or dried currants
• 1 bay leaf
• ½ teaspoon brown sugar

Coat a skillet with cooking spray and heat over low-medium heat. Add the olive oil and onions and sauté until soft, about 8 minutes. Remove the onions from the skillet. Add the coriander, cumin, and cinnamon to the skillet and sauté for 1 minute.

Return the onions to the skillet; add the tomato sauce, broth, raisins or currants, and bay leaf; and cook for 30 minutes or until the sauce is thick and the onions are very tender.

Remove from heat and remove the bay leaf.

Stir in the sugar and season with pepper to taste.
