|Quick Kitchen Prep: Chopping an Onion|
- Cut onion in half: Slice in half through the root and tip. Cut the root and tip off of each half.
- Peel off the papery skin: In addition to peeling away the paper layer, peel one extra layer. While this is slightly wasteful, it’s so much quicker than tediously trying to peel just the paper away.
- Chop the onion: For each half, make three to four slices across the onion keeping the pieces together. Turn the onion 90 degrees and make repeated slices according to desired size.
