In some studies onions have been shown to reduce the risk of head and neck cancers. Some believe onions act as an anti-inflammatory. They also contain folate, calcium, phosphorus and potassium. In addition to all those amazing findings they taste awesome and make the recipes come alive. I couldn’t live without onions. Keep all kinds of onions on hand for all your recipes. Yellow, red, sweet, green and my favorite the shallot. They add flavor to vegetables and soups. Here is the key for Sunday Set-Up™ purposes. Don’t pre cut them, just keep them on hand and cut when you are ready to use. Uncut onions on your counter will last a few weeks, especially out of the sunlight.
