How to Chop Herbs Really Fast

Here at You Plate It, we love to use fresh herbs. But preparing all those tasty ingredients can take time. In this video, our Co-founder Paul demonstrates how slicing your herbs (instead of chopping them) is a fast and easy way to prepare them.

This technique is perfect for herbs such as mint, basil and parsley.

First, pull the leaves off, it doesn’t matter if you get sections of the stem.  Then fold or roll the leaves into a ball.  Finally, slice across the herbs and you’re done! This technique is not only fast, but it will leave your chopping board free from the green stains often seen when chopping.
