Onions, Leeks, Green Onions, Scallions, Garlic

Servings

Raw: Not popular with kids

Cooked:  added to food as it is cooking for additional flavoring

Tips

Onions will last for several weeks.

Great to add to foods as they are cooking for a sweet onion flavor.

Have salad/veggie soup/stew on the menu every week or two. Use up any fresh vegetables before going bad.  Add canned or frozen vegetables until you have enough for everyone.

Recipes

Stir Fry: Add any combination of vegetables you have (pre-cooked broccoli, sliced/chopped cabbage, bok choy, eggplant, onions, green beans, snow/snap peas, shredded carrots) to a pan with some garlic, soy sauce, and ground ginger.  Add meat of choice (chicken and beef are popular). Bake until warm.  Serve with whole wheat “lo mein” noodles (whole wheat spaghetti), or brown rice for your vegetable, whole grain, and protein serving.  Great to serve with pineapples (or you can add pineapples to the vegetables as part of the stir fry).
