2 tablespoons olive oil

2 onions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
2/3 cup non-dairy creamer
2 tablespoons margarine
1-2 teaspoons salt

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over a medium heat. Add onions and slowly sauté, being careful not to brown. Lower heat if necessary.

2. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes until onions are soft and becoming golden. Add sugar and salt and cook, still on low heat for 10 minutes more.

3. In the meantime, place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over a high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until potatoes are soft when pierced with a fork.

4. Drain completely and mash, adding non-dairy creamer, margarine and salt as you go. Pour into a 9x 13-inch pan and top with caramelized onions. Warm briefly before serving.
