MASHED POTATOES AND CARAMELIZED ONIONS RECIPE

MASHED POTATOES AND CARAMELIZED ONIONS

Here’s a simple yet tasty Lebanese dish (with no official name) that is traditionally eaten as a side dish during lent. It’s meatless and perfect to cook if you ever have leftover baked potato! If you’re not using leftover baked potatoes, it’s still super easy to prepare! This can be eaten with pita, radishes, scallions, or even peppers!

Ingredients:

2 medium sized Potatoes (any kind) peeled and cut into small chunks
Salt
Pepper
Olive oil
2 medium Onions sliced

Instructions:

1. In a pot of water, boil potatoes until they are cooked
2. Once potatoes are cooked, put in strainer and rinse with cold water for a few minute until they have cooled off. Once water is drained, place potatoes back into pot and mash
3. Peel onions and cut into strips
4. In a medium to large size frying pan, add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and heat on medium
5. Once heated, add onions, half teaspoon of salt (more or less), dash of pepper and caramelize (until golden brown)
6. Once onions are caramelized, add mashed potatoes and fold in mixing the potato with the onions and olive oil, feel free to taste a small bit after it has been combined for salt or pepper (if it looks dry, drizzle some more olive oil and mix in)
