I can't stand paying that much for basic veggies - there was even a recent case of theft of onions! I hope the new government will do something about this like they are promising.
So anyways, we need our veggies no matter what - there's no escaping that. So I came across drying veggies - supposedly it also allows more nutrients as it is dried. You can google it more if you are interested^^
I came upon drying veggies like pumpkin, broccoli, leafy greens...
I started with pumpkins - I like to add them to "dwenjang jjigae", side dishes, and with rice.

I used to store them fresh on the freezer and they would take so much space! Now it only takes 1/4 or less of space :D
It took about 5 days to completely dry them - you can also use the oven/crisper(?) - but I don't want to use anymore electricity.
It takes some space - but it's pretty seeing these heavy chunky yellow cuts transform to crispy leafy pieces.
