FAQs about chives

Chives may be small but can pack a nutritional punch. They're high in essential vitamins and minerals, such as potassium and vitamins A and C. Chives also serve as a significant source of calcium, iron, phosphorous, and sulfur. They're also beneficial to the digestive system, and their phytonutrients keep the circulatory system healthy and improve blood circulation. Their mild taste can help parents prepare their little ones for the introduction of onions. Because they contain both choline and folate, chives can also assist in the brain's memory improvement and help the body produce DNA and RNA.  

Chives can be used raw as a garnish or cooked as an aromatic herb. You should add them at the end of the cooking process to maintain flavor, aroma, and consistency. They pair well with other aromatics such as Italian and flat-leaf parsley, chervil, and tarragon. We know this group of herbs as "fines herbes" in French cuisine. Many chefs use it to add into stocks and soups for a flavorful impact. 

You can add chives atop baked potatoes or hash growns, or you can mix them in mashed potatoes or a breakfast quiche. Some people enjoy including chives in scrambled eggs, mixed with butter on steak, or applied in a rub for chicken. When finely chopped and included in a mixed green salad, they enhance the flavor profile with an added note of tanginess that works well with a creamy dressing.
