The kitchen, reasonably enough, was the scene of my first gastronomic adventure. I was on all fours. I crawled into the vegetable bin, settled on a giant onion and ate it, skin and all. It must have marked me for life, for I have never ceased to love the hearty flavor of raw onions.”
- James Beard (1903-1985)
Our dehydrated, toasted white onions are made by heating white onions until they turn golden brown, giving them a sautéed flavor. You can use these toasted onions in place of white onions in any recipe for a milder, less pungent flavor. Try these as-is in soups, stews or meatloaf.
About 5 tsp. dried white onion will yield ¼ cup re-hydrated onion. Use these in a pinch or for everyday use. The flavor is so good nobody will be the wiser and you will save plenty of time and avoid all the mess of slicing onions.
These dehydrated, toasted white onions have a sauteed flavor that is milder and less pungent than fresh white onion.
Add to any savory dish. Try as is in soups, stews, and meatloaf. To reconstitute, soak in water for 15-20 mins. Drain any excess liquid before use. About 5 t dried white onion will yield 1/4 cup re-hydrated onion.
For 4-5 T of mix: Blend 3 T dried toasted sliced onion with 2 t dried parsley, 1 t turmeric, 1/2 t kosher salt and sugar, and 1/4 t dried garlic and pepper
