Green Onions & Leeks Category
Green onions can be eaten raw, or stir-fried or grilled. Cooks usually use the white part (minus the root, which is discarded) and the pale green portion of the leaves, though the dark-green portion of the leaves are edible and, when chopped, make a colorful garnish.
Leeks, too, can be eaten raw, but they're more often cooked. Use just the white and pale green portions--the dark green leaves are thick and tough.
Store these in the crisper section of your refrigerator.
