  • Peel the onion, cut it in half and thinly slice it.
  • Pour the water over the dried mushrooms to rehydrate, let sit 5 minutes.

  • Add minced garlic to skillet, then add potatoes and mushroom broth, cover with lid and cook 8 - 10 minutes until liquid is absorbed and potatoes are soft.

    Thoroughly enjoyed these potatoes. I had dried Chanterelles so used them. Really tasty and will be made again! Thanks for posting. Made for Culinary Quest 2014

    Potatoes, mushrooms and onions are a serious trio flavour-wise! Will definitely make this dish again.

    I had a package of asst dried mushrooms so used it. The mushrooms added a pleasing woody flavor and chewy texture to the potatoes. I julianned the potatoes on a mandoline so had thin and slightly crispy potatoes. I would definitely make these again. Made for Culinary Quest 2014

    What a truly pleasing flavor the dried mushrooms brought to these yummy potatoes. I made using mixed dried wild mushrooms which brought a slightly chewy texture and delightful flavor. Thanks for the post.


http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
