What is an onion?

We all know and love them: onions! Whether you use them to flavor a dish, chop them up to top your tacos, slice them to put on your burger, or deep fry them and dip them into sauce. Onions are delicious!

Let’s start by talking about the different types. They are generally referred to by the color they are:

  • yellow or brown
  • red or purple
  • white

Yellow onions are the most commonly used. They are generally on the sweeter side and full of flavor (think French onion soup!)

Red or purple onions usually have a very sharp flavor and are used a lot for grilling (think steak and chicken kabobs!)

And lastly, white onions are found in a lot of Mexican dishes. They are sweeter when sauteed and have a golden color when cooked.
