Several years ago my dear husband gave me the most wonderful gift, this chopping bowl and blade from here.
In mere minutes onions, garlic and spring scallions are chopped and ready to saute. Did you know that onions are one of the oldest vegetables? Many cultures believe onions have medicinal properties, antioxidants and remedy for a common cold or soar throat, some even believe they are an aphrodisiac!
Simply chop spring onions, saute or add to a salad and taste the freshness! Remember before chopping, wash the onions in cold water, light a candle nearby or wear ski goggles to avoid the tears when chopping! A mint or fresh parsley can remedy onion breath!
Enjoy your Spring Sunday!
