My boyfriend hates onion - like he picks pieces of onion out of big piles of food...Problem is everything I want to cook has onion. I can use onion powder and tiny pieces of onion (minimum amounts) without him crying. So is there a way to use onion powder in place of onion pieces? If so how? :)

I'd say yes.

From the Penzeys website:
Quote:
Onion Powder
Great for people who like onion flavor but don't like the texture or appearance of pieces of onion. Onion powder adds lots of flavor to many dishes, and is a convenient way to slip onions past children. ½ tsp. of onion powder equals ¼ Cup freshly chopped onion.

That's good to know. . . I can't even cut a small onion without bawling my eyes out.

If you're making a curry or stew, you could try pureeing the onion into a paste in your food processor. That way, it will completely blend into whatever you're making. You can even work in the spices too and make your own curry paste. If your food processor has a large bowl, it might be easier to puree a big batch of onions and freeze the puree as icecubes. You can puree either cooked onions or raw ones. If you use raw, saute the puree like you would do with raw onions pieces.

I've used onion powder in dishes when I've been out of whole onions. It tastes onion-y!

you could also peel an onion and just drop it whole into a soup or stew and pull it out before eating. you get onion flavor without onion bits.

I never thought about this! I want to make a chili that calls for a small onion - this may work! :)
