From a health perspective, brown onions have up to 100 times the amount of key antioxidants than white onions with red onions being the best of all.
Onions release substances that irritate eyes, resulting in that inevitable production of tears. Minimise your tears by always using a sharp knife keeping cuts away from you. Some people swear by chilling an onion before you cut into it as it releases less propanethial s-oxide, the stuff that goes for the eyes! Or you could wear goggles, perhaps, a great look in the kitchen.
Perfect for ... Stir-frying, cooking or eating in salads.
