I learned that doing prep-work over weekends is very efficient for busy weekday cooking. A cheap food chopper (recommend Brieftons QuickPull Food Chopper in the picture below instead of expensive food processors) is very helpful for cutting vegetables into small pieces. I cut onions into small pieces and don’t need to cry anymore.
- Cut vegetables into big pieces first
- Place the big pieces of vegetables inside the chopper
- close the lid
- Pull the string a few times – The more times you pull, the smaller pieces they will be.
- Get small pieces out of the chopper and ready for cooking or store them in the ziplog 🙂
One cabinet is a little difficult to clean the blades, but recommend to soak them in water and dry them.
