Chives belong to the allium family, making them close relatives to scallions, onions, leeks, and garlic. Chives have a mild oniony flavor with a slight hint of garlic, and a little goes a very long way.
There are some great nutritional benefits to chives. They have antioxidant properties, can aid in digestion and they contain a ton of nutrients including beta carotene, folic acid, Vitamin K, B vitamins, calcium, potassium, iron, and magnesium.
You can find chives easily at almost any grocery store, but they honestly are one of the easiest things to grow. Chives are among the first green things to pop up out of the garden in the spring and when they do, I use them as much as I possibly can and I suggest you do too!
Now for your Trick:
Chop some fresh chives into stews, pasta, salads or soups for a zippy taste and a little boost of green nutrition.
The pretty pink flowers of the chive plant are edible too! What a pretty addition to a green salad!
