Fresh, Chopped Onions on a Weeknight

| September 25, 2007 | 3 Comments

No time for a full post this morning, but here’s a nifty little tip. If you have a FoodSaver or a similar device that seals bags while sucking all the air out of them, you can speed up your mid-week cooking.


Chop ingredients like onions, carrots, peppers and potatoes or mince garlic over the weekend. Then use your FoodSaver to seal the bag. Store it in your fridge until you are ready to use it.

Think of all the prep time that will save!
