Green Onions, was a hit song by Booker T and the MG’s, but the vegetable is one of the most popular garnishes and add-on to any salad or soup. It’s one of the standard vegetables that has long since been a favorite at the dinner table. Green Onions are very versatile and can be sautéed, baked, or eaten raw.
High in flavor, yet low in calories, green onions do not contain any sodium, fat, or cholesterol. They do provide you with dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, and other key nutrients. They even contain quercetin, a component which helps fight inflammation, lowers cholesterol, and acts as an anti-oxidant.
