O’Brien’s voice is so calming, and his advice is legit. He demonstrates how to cut each vegetable while giving information about the veggie and how to prep it for different dishes. There’s all kinds of tips like “Slaws are the great equalizer of vegetables,” in the scallion video, and in the bok choy one, he offers two ways to cook it on the grill.
