    I do this with bell peppers what a good idea to do it for onions and garlic.

    I do too. But I’ve done this for years. You see, I simply hate the tedium and mess of prep for dishes. So, quite often if I don’t have the stuff already chopped up, I just leave it out.

By chopping larger quantities (2 onions at a time, a bunch of shallots, several bunches of green onions) at one time (takes me about 20 minutes a week), and putting them in separate ziplocks, I can have my onions and eat them too! (Not quite as good as cake, but almost as tasty when added to the right dishes.
