So....I am a nerd. I own that and I even embrace it. It's just who I am. So this project is a little on the nerdy side, but it was a total success. Awhile back, someone on the Weight Watchers Vegetarian Message Board mentioned prepping a bag of onions all at once and freezing them. That way you just cry once and get it over with. So I started doing that. However, it still felt like a pain in the ass to me b/c it burned my eyes so bad and by the time I was finished, it was like I had just watched My Life with Michael Keaton. So, when Rebekah asked me to pick up some goggles for her so she could swim at the gym, I decided to get some for myself to try out this little project.
Step 1: Get some goggles
Step 2: Get a bag of onions
Step 3: Get other supplies ready: food processor, knife and cutting board and containers to put your onions in
Step 4: Chop the onions into chunks, food process and put into individual containers-then freeze
That's it! If you prepare your onions this way, it takes the hassle out of it. You wear the goggles so you don't cry, you prep a lot of them at once and you freeze them. You will always have onions ready to go into any recipe at any time. Amazing!
