Quick, easy, delicious and a family pleaser! I made this one up when I discovered I'd accidentally purchased a can of potatoes. Love it with fresh Idaho, New and purple potatoes, too!
- 2 medium potatoes or 1 can white potato, rinsed
- 2 -3 tablespoons onion soup mix, with dehydrated onions
- 2 tablespoons soy oil
- soy sauce
- black pepper
- garlic powder
- sesame seeds (optional)
- Heat sesame oil in large frypan on a low flame.
- Add a few dashes of soy sauce; onion soup mix and stir.
- Evenly distribute mixture in the bottom of the pan.
- Slice potatoes into 1/4-inch slices, rinse and place flat in frypan.
- Sprinkle the rest of the onion soup mix on top of the potatoes and add pepper and garlic powder.
- Cover and let sit for approximately 5 minutes.
- Add a few dashes of soy sauce and using a spatula, gently lift and stir potatoes to mix seasonings.
- Remove from heat and cover for approximately 2 minutes.
- Serve hot.
- Notes: If you use raw potatoes, cooking time will be longer.
- The desired texture for the potatoes is fork tender.
- You can filter the onion soup mix by shaking it in a strainer to separate dehydrated onion from the powder.
- This way you can control the amount of seasonings you desire to add to your rice, sauces, onion dip, etc.
- To reduce sodium, use a ratio of 1 tablespoon of onion soup mix and 1 teaspoon of onion powder.
- Try this recipe with fresh baby spinach leaves added in Step 4.
Why oh why has this never been rated? This is fabulous and I know it will become a family favourite. We microwaved our potatoes so they were almost cooked and then followed your instructions. I used a packet of 'Maggi onion soup mix'. Extremely tasty and a definite favourite.
