Chives are an herb in the Allium family, which also includes onions, garlic, leeks, and shallots. Chives are the smallest species of the onion family, and have a somewhat milder flavor than other alliums, making them a suitable alternative for people who aren’t especially fond of raw garlic and onion. Chives, both fresh and dried, have a wide variety of international culinary uses, including in traditional French and Chinese dishes. With their mild onion flavor, chives are a great complement to potatoes, vegetables, fish, veal, creamy sauces, cheese, and eggs. Add chives at the last moment when cooking hot soups, sauces and sautés, since extended cooking tends to reduce their flavor. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
