You’ve been chopping peppers wrong – foodie’s hack does job much quicker

Cooking does not come naturally to a lot of us – especially when it comes to chopping up veg.

Luckily, one woman has saved the day by revealing the correct way to cut up bell peppers.

TikTok user @wellbymel_ came to the rescue with her handy trick to cut up the vegetable without seeds going everywhere.

Mel Spinella, who often shares nutritional content to her 100,000 TikTok followers, grabbed a yellow pepper and placed it on its head.

Once bumps on the bottom faced upwards, she cuts down the lines of the bumps creating four equal pieces of veg.

All that is left to do is chop off the pieces and dispose of the seeds.
