- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 small sweet onions, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 small garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups canned whole tomatoes
- 1 cup fat free, sodium free chicken broth
- 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
- Dash hot pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse grained salt
- 1 pound cod
Heat oil in a 3-quart non-reactive saucepan over medium high heat, add the onions and cook until browned and softened, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic, tomatoes, chicken broth, potatoes, pepper flakes, and salt, stir until combined. Cover and reduce heat to medium and cook 45 minutes or until potatoes are almost mushy but have not lost their shape.
Pour half the potatoes and tomatoes in a refrigerator dish for tomorrow night's quick vegetable beef stew. Lay cod over stew, cover and steam until tender and fish begins to flake, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve immediately.
