These onions are one of the best shortcuts you can use to save time and waste in the kitchen. Once they’re rehydrated, you’ll never know that they aren’t fresh. They’ll even make your eyes water if you get too close and you'll be able to use them anywhere you would use fresh onions. Add them to dishes like gravies, soups, sauces, stews, meatloaf, meatballs, hamburgers, omelets, chili, and sour cream dips.
Allium vegetables like onions, shallots, leeks, and scallions don’t contain significant amounts of vitamins or minerals, but they're a good source of allyl sulfides which are compounds that may help lower blood pressure and hinder tumor growth. They also contain saponins which may prevent tumors and reduce cholesterol.
