In a perfect world, chopping onions would never be necessary! They’d simply be available in our pantry any time, day or night, ready to be scattered into any of our favorite recipes!
But then again, we don’t live in a perfect world!
So, when I need to add onions into my recipe, I deal with the chopping of the onions, and the tears that come with it!
Or do I ?!?
I have discovered a well kept secret that allows me to add onions to my recipes, and yet allows me to avoid the crying!
By choice, I have learned to keep a can of freeze-dried onions in my pantry at the ready! I simply order them here, and they arrive wherever my little homestead on wheels is currently parked – and they come already diced or in slices, whichever I prefer!
Although between you and me, I order the sliced onions rather than chopped. This way they are ready to be sautéed in butter for when I am hungry for a cheesesteak sandwich. And I can simply chop the slices up when a recipe calls for chopped onions and still avoid the tears!
Adding onions is a great way to boost any homecooked meal with flavor, and I get the added benefits of vitamin C and dietary fiber!
I simply toss them into my favorite soups… or scatter them into my omelets… mix them into a casserole… create a spicy salsa… or sauté them to top a burger…
I for one enjoy being able to incorporate them into whatever recipe calls for onions! No longer am I chained to the cutting board, and the tears that come with chopping onions!
Oh, and if you have a finicky eater in your home, simply powder them in a blender and even your most discriminating palates will never be the wiser!
So, here’s to adding onions to many of your favorite dishes without all the waterworks!
Until next time,
Peace, love and safe travels!
