Ingredients:- Dried Onion Flakes. Onion Flakes are onions that have been chopped and then dehydrated. 12 kilos of fresh onions are needed to make 1 kilo of dried onions. They lack some of the pungency of fresh onions, but they're convenient and great for backpacking. Use them in sautés, dressings, sauces, stir-frys and dips. Add them directly to the dish if it contains adequate liquid, or reconstitute first by soaking in cold water (2 parts water to 1 part onion flakes) for 15-30mins.
Use 2½ tablespoons of onion flakes for each fresh onion called for in your recipe. Used in soups, vegetable dishes, stews, braised meats, fish dishes, stocks, marinades, pâtés, onion tarts, etc. Equivalents: 1 small onion = 1/3 cup = 1 teaspoon onion powder = 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes. Packed in a factory that packs milk, wheat, and nuts.
