I like too cook with onions. They add flavor to so many dishes and are one of hubby's favorites. The only problem is they make my eyes water like something fierce. I am not talking a few glistening tears friends....I am talking full on water face. My eyes can not handle onions, so I have a hard time cooking with them...no matter how flavorful they may make a dish.
For a while Hubby would help me or the boy, but sometimes I don't have any other hands around to help me with the chopping. I needed to come up with an alternative. Then I remembered my food processor. I've had it for years, but it had never occurred to me to use it to chop onions. I decided to give it a try. In less than 2 minutes I had multiple onions chopped and ready for cooking. I now like to chop a bunch at once, so then I have onions for the week or I will chop and freeze onions. Either way there's less tears in the kitchen, which makes this mama very happy.
I now use my food processor to also chop veggies that I'm throwing into casseroles and soups. It makes meal prep a breeze!
What kitchen hacks do you use to make meal prep quicker?
