  2. 2. Cut the tip of the onion off<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Score the outer layers of the onion from tip to root. This makes it easier to peel off the outer layers.<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. Peel off the outer layers off the onion<br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. The onion should now look like this. Notice the root end is still intact. This makes dicing the onion easier, as it holds the onion together.<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. Stand the onion on the tip, as the flat surface stops it from rolling around. Cut the onion straight down the middle.<br />
  11. 11.
  12. 12. You should now have two even halves<br />
  13. 13.
  14. 14. Place the onion flat surface down on the chopping board. This keeps the onion sturdy while you dice it.<br />
  15. 15.
  16. 16. Begin slicing the onion from the tip to about 2cm from the root. <br />
  17. 17.
  18. 18. Do this the whole way across the onion. The cuts should be about ½cm apart.<br />
  19. 19.
  20. 20. Now cut the onion the opposite direction (from one side to the other). <br />
  21. 21.
  22. 22. Continue cutting right up to about 2cm from the root of the onion. These cuts should be about ½cm apart.<br />
  23. 23.
  24. 24.
  25. 25. You should end up with the whole onion in small cubes, and the root end remaining, this can be thrown away.<br />
  26. 26.
  27. 27. And now to sauté…<br />Get a fry pan and place it over the stove top on medium-high heat.<br />
  28. 28.
  29. 29. You will need oil<br />
  30. 30.
  31. 31. Coat the bottom of the fry pan with oil <br />(around 2 teaspoons)<br />
  32. 32.
  33. 33. Place your diced onion in the fry pan<br />
  34. 34.
  35. 35. Spread the onion around the pan, this helps to cook the onion evenly.<br />
  36. 36.
  37. 37. Get a wooden spoon<br />
  38. 38.
  39. 39. Stir the onion constantly to ensure it doesn’t burn or stick to the bottom of the fry pan.<br />
  40. 40.
  41. 41. When the onion is ready it will look pale and almost see through.<br />
