Nature's Ninja — The Perfect Onion Ambassador

For health, nutrition, taste

No longer the humble onion, this phenom of Mother Nature deserves higher praise for its stealth, its endurance and its adaptability. It’s both an offensive and defensive character in that while it can be ascribed as a preventative nutrient to ward off diseases, it’s also a major action hero, slaying disease and bacteria just to get to the table.

Consider these Ninja qualities:

» Assassins — Onions don’t have a lot of vengeance in them, but they’ll slay a foe.

» Survivors — From its hard, papery skin keeping bacteria at bay to its pungent juices preserving itself, the onion was built to survive the elements.

» Master of Disguise — From the outside, the onion seems unassuming and simple. But there’s a warrior inside ready to fight disease, perhaps engage in a little espionage to keep disease at bay.

» Resourceful — Onions also have many properties to keep those who eat it healthy — while it helps sustain a healthy gut, it can also help your mental health – have you have a good cry lately?

» Adaptable — It can tempt the taste buds in a variety of forms to create just the right mixture of tastes to add the perfect touch to your meals.

» Stealthy — Who hasn’t minced an onion to slip into recipes without being noticed? We know chefs who sweat onions and turn the onions into a puree to add the right amount of flavor to their dishes.
