Many good home cooked meals include the delicious flavour of sautéed onions. If you are ever looking for cooking ideas, and don't know what to make for dinner, just start cooking up some onions to inspire your senses. Pretty much every dinner recipe will go with onions, whether you are making a stir fry, a vegetable medley, a pasta sauce, or even a soup, onions just go well with everything savoury. The nutritional value of onions includes being low in sodium, very high in dietary fiber and vitamin C, and high in manganese, potassium, and vitamin B6. A good tip for cutting onions is to cut them in small, fine slices, which allows the nutrients to become activated to release. Did you know, if you let onions sit for five to ten minutes it also helps to release the nutrients in an onion? If onions make you tear up when you peel and cut them, this is a sign that they are potent with nutrients so grab some goggles and chop them up.***
