Roasted Potatoes, Onions and Garlic


A while ago I bought a box of Lipton's Vegetable Flavored Dip and Soup Mix. I had a coupon, so I bought it, with no idea what I was going to do with it. It's an impulse I've stopped fighting a long time ago! Anyway, needing a side dish for our chicken, I thought that perhaps the soup mix would be a nice little coating for the potatoes, so I threw in some garlic and onions, and it turned out delicious. Even the smell coming from the oven was heavenly, it has a very strong and sharp taste, but not too much that your kids won't like it. You could really make this kind of dish about a million different ways, that's what I love about roasted veggies.

Ingredients

4-5 red potatoes diced
1 onion, cut in half and then slice 1/2 inch thick
4-5 garlic cloves, roughly minced
1 packet preferred soup or dip mix
2-3 teaspoons olive oil
3-4 tablespoons water

Directions

Preheat oven to 400. Combine potatoes, onions, and garlic in 8 x 8 pan. Coat with olive oil and toss with dip mix. Pour water into bottom of pan to help steam potatoes. Roast for 8-10 minutes, or until veggies are fork tender. Serve hot.

I love roasted vegetables, I could eat them every day. I usually top them with Penzey's smoky sea salt blend, next time I'll try your version!

All great meat dishes need taters, taters with onion and garlic are the best taters around!!

This sounds great. I especially like the fact that you just "winged" it. Some fantastic recipes have been the result of people taking a leap of faith in the kitchen LOL.

Teresa I have been making these potatoes for yrs. Next time you bbq spray some foil with pam and through them on the bbq. Then you don't have to wash a bowl. They look yummy.
