IMG_1727
Garlic chives differ from the more common onion chives in shape and nutritional density.

There are two kinds of chives, onion and garlic. What is most commonly found in American stores and herb gardens is the onion variety, which has thin tube-like leaves and a bright but mild flavor. Garlic chives are more popular in Asian cuisine and are sometimes referred to as Chinese chives for that reason. They have wider, flat leaves, a pungent garlic aroma, and distinct garlic flavor. Because garlic chives are LowFODMAP, this makes them the perfect substitute in recipes that call for garlic.
