Fragrant and nutritious, alliums are a must-have for your grocery cart.
Herbs and spices add flavor to your meals, and just a small amount can add up to big health benefits. Some of the best herbs you can stock up on are alliums, which refer to the large class of bulbous herbs in the amaryllis family. They are defined by their round or spherical flower clusters, basal leaves, and striking aroma. Not only do they smell and taste great, edible alliums contain crucial nutrients such as vitamins and minerals that ensure optimal health. Pick up one of these six popular alliums on your next trip to the supermarket.
Watch: What to Eat on The Regimen
Green Onions or Scallions
Green onions and scallions are one and the same to most home cooks, but green onions have a small bulb, while scallions have no bulb at all. Both are immature forms of the onion, and their green tops can be substituted for chives. Give scallions a try as a topping for avocado egg cups.
