Tip-a-licious Thursday

On my mission to eat healthier, I have tweaked a lot of my meals to lower sodium, fats, & etc. So what about flavor? Well, I use a lot of onions, garlic, and seasonings like ginger, oregano, chili powder, pepper and more ONIONS!

I love to eat onions (when I don't have to speak directly to someone). They are very versatile and are yummy raw or cooked. I think the only thing I hate about them is....drum roll.....cutting them! Imagine my reaction when it dawned on me that I can freeze my diced onions for later use. Duh! Why didn't I think of this sooner?!

Here's what I did:
1. Clean & peel your onion.
2. Start dicing or cut big chunks and throw into your food processor. Just don't overdo it or you'll end up with onion mush.
3. Place diced onions in freezer bags. Be sure to squeeze out all the air, then store them flat in your freezer.

When you are ready to use your onions, just break off what you need! Personally, I have thrown frozen onions into several of my dishes and they had no problem quickly thawing.

Easy, right?!
Happy freezing....
