There are many different ways a person can cook potatoes. Almost every country has “their” way of adding their “flare” to this everyday staple. I set out to find a recipe that will change how I personally make potatoes in my own home. I am proud to say I have a few Armenian (Lebanese) friends and learning a few dishes from their culture helps bring us together more. Who knows if I’m lucky I might even marry an Armenian Lebanese guy one day! 🙂
- 1 1⁄2 lbs large old potatoes
- 2 large onions (cut in chunks)
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste(recipe suggests catsup as a sub)
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1⁄2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley (optional)
- Wash and peel potatoes, cut potatoes and onions in chunks.
- In a large bowl mix together the oil, tomato paste, water, salt, paprika, combine with potatoes.
- Add onions, pepper to taste, parsley and toss to mix.
- Bake in a covered dish in a preheated 325-degree oven for about 45 minutes or until potatoes is soft.
This recipe is really simple to make and is good as a side dish with just about any meal. Everyone will enjoy this dish.
