  1. The “lowly” onion is oft overlooked and/or unappreciated for its many nutritional benefits. My love affair with onions is long ‘n’ steady … because my body recognizes just how good they are!

  2. add a bit of black garlic, chopped red onion and capers and gently fry and add to pasta. OMG. So good! Don’t add to much garlic though.. not so good for sensitive stomachs as I found out last week! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  3. I really didn’t know any of these benefits! I always thought onions are just those awesome tasting, eye burning, fart causing little balls. I was obviously wrong.

    Thank you for enlightening me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gotta cook onions with piece of conscience !
