Featured food of the day Onions


French onion soup recipe from the wonderful Simply Recipes site here.


Unlike the research on garlic and its cardiovascular benefits, research specifically focused on onion has mostly been conducted on animals rather than humans. In animal studies, there is evidence that onion's sulfur compounds may work in an anti-clotting capacity and help prevent the unwanted clumping together of blood platelet cells. There is also evidence showing that sulfur compounds in onion can lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, and also improve cell membrane function in red blood cells.

More great onion information can be found at the
Worlds Healthiest Foods site here. WHF is a not for profit goldmine of great food information.

I couldn't stand the texture of onions as a kid, but now I think I'm a little addicted. Fried in palm oil and added to pretty much everything is the general rule.

The soup recipe looks good, might have to give it a whirl. Cheers.

I think onions can be a lot more versatile than some may think.

Many thanks for your comments
