How Onions Can Help You Save Money, Time And Gas Or Stove

When it comes to veggies, onions are among those that can be classed as "non-leafy." They are found in the Allium genus, which is the same region where garlic can be found, among other things. Onions are well-known for the distinct aroma that they impart to foods, and as a result, they are frequently in high demand since they are used to enhance the flavor and aroma of foods.

The benefit of onions to foods, on the other hand, goes beyond their pleasant aroma. This article will provide you with information on how to make economical use of onions, which will save you money and cooking gas, which is especially important in the current economic climate, in which the price of cooking gas appears to be rising at an alarming rate.

Some legumes, particularly beans, are notoriously resistant to heat and will not soften until they are cooked for extremely extended periods of time, which is not always possible. This, on the other hand, would surely result in you exhausting large quantities of cooking gas as a result of the softening of such food. This is not the outcome that the majority of people would prefer.

Here's how to use onions the next time you're cooking beans to avoid having your beans burn for an extended period of time:

Whatever method or recipe you intend to use with your beans, as long as you do not require them to be ground into a paste, as in the case of Akara and moi-moi, you will almost certainly need to parboil them first.

After parboiling, but before your second cooking, consider adding some slices of onion to the pot of beans and allowing it to sit on the stove for a short period of time to brown. The effects of these onion slices will have an impact on the seeds, altering the protein bonds that are causing them to be resistant to heat. As a result, your beans will soften quickly, saving you both time and cooking gas.

Personally, I've been doing this for quite some time now and have found it to be beneficial. You might want to have a look at it.
