Shredded scallions and julienne carrots are ingredients that are often called for in Chinese recipes. It's very labor intensive to do it by hand but I've recently discovered two great gadgets that make it super easy to do. First, the nagi cutter. In Japanese, naging means scallion. Take the nagi cutter and pull it along the bottom portion of the scallion and then cut of the scallion shreds. The second tool is the kinpira peeler. This is perfect for julienning carrots. Spear the carrot on the root end with a fork. Pull the kinpira along the length of the carrot and then cut the carrot strands into two or three inch segments. The best part is your friends are going to think you've mastered Chinese knife skills.
