Remember Royters thread about tomatoes and onions

The one where you had to pick one to give up forever…

Just wanted to let you all know that I’ve finally decided on giving up tomatoes and keeping onions!

Kept forgetting to buy onions this last week (been dead busy) and really suffered. Not such a big deal when the tomatoes run out.

I do not, no.


Tomatoes are much more useful and more prevalent and essential to recipes and etc than onions.

So you are wrong.

No way!

Unless you’re using some other kind of scallion substitute of course.

think i could live without onions, love tomatoes so much

had a pizza a few weeks back with four different kinds of tomato on it and it was amazing

Are you trying to body shame my gf or something? Because that’s not on.

Garlic does a respectable job of covering for onion, though. What covers for tomato? Nothing, that’s what. Motherfuckin Fruit 1 Dimbulbs 0

I had no idea vegetarianism was this bleak.

You suspected.

Lack of tomatoes is definitely, unarguably more limiting than a lack of onions. Fact. You can’t argue with that.

Really not sure.

I use both tomatoes and onions in pretty much everything I cook…

ooh look at me i eat anything that moves even if it blows my bum out

As was I but just try living without onions for a week!

Well, approx. 75% of everything I cook.
And of the remaining 25%, most of those will have one or the other…

I draw the line if it’s actually moving, tbf.

Not germane Defoe.

Agree that they usually go hand in hand, but I reckon in the majority of those cases the tomatoes are more important to the dish than the onion.
