I’ve given y’all a little onion tutorial, because it took me a long time to stop chopping my vegetables the size of silver dollars. I had to call my mother numerous times to ask her to explain this chop to me, and I’VE FINALLY GOT IT WORLD!
Why I really like this chop is because my eyes are SUPER SENSITIVE to onions. Like, I could walk into Subway during prep time and start tearing up.
Chopping this way keeps the juicy side down for the most part, and keeps those onion vapors out of the air, and away from your eyes.
As promised, here’s the separate post just for this tutorial so you can find it easy.
First, slice off the top of the onion.
Next, place flat side down, and slice in half, lengthwise.
Now you can easily pull the skin off!
Now to chop.
Make vertical cuts, going almost to the root, but not through it.
Then make 2 cuts the other way, going parallel to the board.
Super easy, right?
