Incorporate green onions into a dish to add mild flavor. Eat the onions cooked or raw. Add them to soups, dips, potatoes and other dishes. Sauté with other vegetables in stir-fry or with meat. The green part of the onion is the edible part. This part sticks out of the ground while it grows. Use fresh onions whenever possible. Fresh onions should have crisp stalks and a rich, green color.

Chopping

Place the green onions on a cutting board.

Grip the onions by the lower end, toward the white portion.
