Editor-in-Chief James Oseland shows us a simple and quick trick for cooking with lemongrass as an aromatic — no chopping or grinding required.
What you'll need:
A heavy object, like a coffee mug
How it works:
Cut off the bottom inch and very top of the lemongrass stalk.
Peel off the outermost layers.
Smash it gently with a heavy object until it's nice and splayed out.
Tie it into a nice, neat, nifty little knot.
Add your lemongrass knot to a coconut rice and the the flavor will be just fantastic.
