With soaring prices of  onions, how about using  chives as a replacement? The herbs can give you the flavour of onion without being too strong!
With its thin, green blades, this smallest member of the onion family imparts a mild, grassy flavour just like that of spring onions. The Asian variety of chives is called garlic chives.
Storage The herb is available in markets. When buying, choose green leaves with no browning or wilting. It can be kept refrigerated for up to three days.
Preparation There’s a lot you can do with chives. Make a creamy sauce out of it, use it as a garnish over salads and in sandwiches or add it to a hearty  soup, the delicate herbs work just as well. It’s best to snip the chives with a small pair of scissors and do not overcook them or they will lose their taste. Our tip: Sprinkle chives on your omelette!
