|Halacha - onions|
|Submitted by B.A Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
If the onions were chopped with a pareve knife on a pareve cutting board then they remain pareve even if they were placed in a fleishig container afterwards. A sharp food like an onion only absorbs and gives off flavor when pressure is applied. If the onions were cut with a fleishig knife, then they may not be eaten together with milchig food, but they may be eaten off a milchig plate and the container does not become fleishig.
