What's The Difference Between Scallions And Green Onions?
By Heidi Chaya
Sprinkled on top of everything from nachos to rice pilaf, the bright, crisp rings of scallions and green onions add a flourish of color, crunch, and zing to any dish. Although scallions and green onions are rich in micronutrients like folate, vitamins C and K, and antioxidants, the two plants are slightly different.
MasterClass says that the words "scallion" and "green onion" are essentially the same thing, referring to plants in the Allium family (along with leeks and shallots). Scallions may have a white bulb the width of their stem, while green onions can have a bigger white bulb, per Healthline.
Scallions and green onions pair well with potatoes, sour cream, stir-fries, and soups. One good tip is to place the scallions flat in a single file when chopping to avoid crushing the leaves and be sure the trim off the root ends, as well as any wilted or discolored parts.
