Onions are the underrated, underappreciated rock stars of cooking. These bulbs, available in yellow, red, and white varieties, enhance the flavor of any dish without any added salt or sugar.
You can sprinkle them raw over salads, use them to make salsas and dips, and incorporate them in your favorite soup or casserole – the possibilities are endless! Not only are onions packed with fiber and vitamins C and B6, but they have also been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.
