Cutting an Onion


#1

what’s your favourite vegetable to chop


#2

Courgette’s a satisfying chop


#3

Peppers or mushrooms


#4

mushroom is pretty good

so easy


#5

aubergine is quite nice


#6

mushroom or garlic


#7

Might be a classic tater for me, Clive.


#8

garlic’s too fiddly for me


#9

Agree. Especially if we’re talking more that just pure chopping - i.e., the peeling and stuff as well. Way too much hassle to be a satisfying task.


#10

impossible to get rid of the smell, too


#11

I think courgette is the best, although my onion technique is pretty good.

Once you’ve got the skin off, the top half of a butternut squash is great because you can cube it up so easily. The bottom half is a faff with all the seeds, though.


#12

Mushrooms and courgettes are the business. Sometimes I’ll just chuck them in because I enjoy chopping them so much.

Butternut Squash can fuck right off though and I won’t even go near a turnip.


#13

you probably won’t have heard of it


#14

chop the clove in half and the skin slides off like a dream


#15

it’s not just the skin, even chopping it fine enough is hard work


#16

Probably cabbage, very satisfying crunch.


#17

You just need a really sharp knife.


#18

Spring onion. Little incisive cuts. Makes me feels like a sushi chef


#19

Wheres all the leek love?

Big fan of making leek wheels.

Haha yeah you’re absolutely right, our knives are properly emily blunt. I was even struggling to chop spring onions last night.
