Ingredient Name: Green Onions, Spring Onions, Salad Onions
Traditional Chinese Name: (qīng cōng)
What is this?
  • Green onions are young shoots of bulb onions, and are milder tasting than large bulb onions
  • They have a small, not fully developed white bulb end with long green stalks
  • When buying green onions, look for ones with bright green tops, firm stalks (not wilted), and a firm white bulb at the bottom

How do I prepare it?

  • Wash thoroughly in cool water, remove the bulb at the bottom, and chop the green stalks into fine pieces (as in above photo)

Where can I buy this?

  • You can buy from any supermarket

What is the cost?

  • Green onions are very affordable
  • When shopping in chinese grocery stores, it is possible to get green onions free (with a purchase of other vegetables)

Any benefits?

  • Green onions are fat-, sodium-, and cholesterol-free, low in calories, and high in vitamin C.
  • They also contain dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, and other key nutrients
  • They make a great garnish

Any precautions?

  • None that I can think of.  Enjoy!
