I have found that tilting the beaker with the immersion blender often helps it deal with smaller volumes of stuff. A Magic Bullet works well for small amounts.

I would just chop it by hand. It's less effort than taking out electric tools and cleaning them up.

Andy, the bits of my food processor can be washed on the top shelf of a dishwasher. Most of them don't fit on the top shelf of my dishwasher.

That's unfortunate, TL. It just makes life a little harder.

My wife had THIS one (or an earlier version of it) when we got married 22 years ago, and it's still going strong.

I buy minced garlic in a jar and chopped onions in a two pound bag that I divide into 1/2 cup portions and freeze. The parsley and oregano you can tear up by hand. Now you have all your ingredients mise en place and you haven't even dirtied a knife. Mix it all up in a bowl, add a big hunk of medium rare beef and you're good to go.
