The Why, When, and How: Smashing Garlic and Cutting Round Vegetables

To Smash or not to Smash? Here we discuss and demonstrate for you, as well as how to easily cut round vegetables that tend to want to roll and get away from you!

Why: smashing garlic helps get the most flavor out of the clove, and it helps make chopping the clove easier, because it doesn’t “roll around” on you.
“Round” vegetables, such as mushrooms and onions, tend to want to “roll” or move around on you when you’re trying to chop them. This video will help you remove the rolling and will help show you how to chop easier!

When: whenever your recipe calls for yummy garlic or vegetables.

How: see Karen in the video below-

I always have a favorite part of these videos that Karen does, and in this one, it’s around the 6:30ish mark, where she starts talking about “ze claw”! So funny! It’s really a great tip and one that has totally stuck with me for years, because even when I’m in the kitchen now and I’m chopping something, I find myself giggling and saying “you hold your fingers like ze claw yes!”   🙂
