I am a sook at the best of times, however I can never seem to dice an onion without crying. I have tried everything:
- wearing my sunglasses
- soaking them in water
- putting them in the freezer for 15 minutes
- using my sharpest knife
- or just getting hubby to do it
I’m sure you have tried a few of these too!! A few years ago I learnt of a great gadget that eliminates the tears and also finely dices the onions too.
The Chefn VeggiChop is big enough to fit in either 1 full onion (sliced in half), 1 carrot roughly chopped, a bag of nuts, celery sticks roughly chopped, the list is endless. The advantage of being able to easily chop your veggies so small is that you can add them to dishes like bolognese, lasagna or soups and the kids would be none the wiser. There are a few different varieties of these little choppers available, however I love that this one fits a full onion! The Chefn VeggiChop is available online and instore at Howards Storage World.
I had quite a few vegetables in the fridge recently that needed eating so I made Donna Hay’s Spaghetti Bolognese which I added, onion, carrots and celery.
