Here is a special TECHNIQUE of

HOW to "FRY" ONIONS WITHOUT A DROP OF OIL !!!

The same technique can be done to roast peppers and any other vegetales.
I use a kitchen timer with this method.


I "FRY" at least 4-5 very large onions for the whole week, and keep it refrigirated for use in many dishes.


4-5 very large sweet onions, sliced or chopped

In a large non stick pan, on HIGH HEAT, put in onions and COVER with the lid for 1-2 minutes (more like 2 minues)
DO NOT STIR OR OPEN THE LID.

After 1-2 minutes, open the lid, mix well, and COVER with the lid , second time.
Cook again for 1-2 minutes without opening.
Open the lid and mix thourouly.

Repeat it once more. (three times total, and all on HIGH HEAT !!!).
By now, the onions got a brown color and they are soft.
If after you mix them they are NOT brown, repeat once more the above method.

If you have an electric top stove, turn stove OFF, and keep stirring CONSTANTLY for about 3-4 minutes more, WITHOUT the lid.

If you have a gas stove, turn it to the lowest heat, and stir CONSTANTLY WITHOUT the lid, for 3-4 minutes.

SAFTY NOTE:
You HAVE to be in the kitchen the whole time to watch it.

Great inside a pita bread with low fat cheese.
Great as a filler for chillies.
Great in burgers, with finely chopped onions instead of sliced onions.
Great on Pizza.
I add "FRIED ONIONS" to many dishes.
It enhances the flavor of many dishes.

BON APETITE

Wonderful suggestions. I haven't been up to Trader Joe's in awhile....I'll have to make the effort to go soon. But first, I'll check the cupboards and make a list - so I'm careful of my purchases. I don't like having too much in the cupboards. - Laurie

I just bought the Hamilton Beach 6 quart slow cooker with a lid you can latch on...Perfect for when we need to transport the slow cooker.

Trader Joe's

1. They sell one pound package of frozen sliced peppers, red, green, and orange , for $1.29 a pound!
Great to add to Chilies and more.

2. They also sell fresh - frozen Cilantro, Garlic, and Basil, imported from Israel, in small trays, divided into tiny squares (cubes).
You just pop out what you need. Very helpful and a great idea!

3. In their produce department they sell 18 oz. of fresh, peeled, and diced Butternut Squash for $2.99.

4. Dr. Praeger's Calefornia vegie burger (NOT the Tex Mex that look almost the same)

5. 0% (FF) plain Fage greek yogurt

6. All kinds of frozen fruits (I like the tripple berries the best)

7. Trader Joe's Red Pepper Spread with eggplant and Garlic. Delicious!

8. Trader Joe's Cranberry Orange Bread Mix (need only 1 TBS. of vegetable oil. I use a little apple sauce instead)

9. Trader Joe's Brownie Truffle Baking Mix (Instead of one stick of butter I use 1 or more cup of apple sauce)
