  • 2 medium shallots, diced
  • 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes

  • Add the dried onions and garlic to the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment (or a mortar and pestle) and pulse until roughly chopped.
  • Add the vegetable oil and shallots to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are crispy and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the red pepper, dried onion and garlic mixture, salt and paprika.
