Cooking is great. After all, who doesn't love a freshly made homemade meal that has filled your house with the fantastic aroma of something bubbling away on the stove? But cooking and prepping are two very different things, aren't they? While everyone may love a slowly simmered sauce, or a sheet pan of veggies that have been roasted to perfection, who really wants to spend all that time chopping and dicing?
No one. In fact, prepping has often been touted as the most annoying part of preparing a meal. That's why they have all those over-priced containers of pre-chopped vegetables in the produce aisle next to all those whole needs-to-be-chopped vegetables. But, learn how to chop and slice those vegetables the right way - which also happens to be the fastest way - and the next time you have a big meal to prep, you'll do it with a smile instead of a groan.
