Is Chive Spring Onion?
Chives are the only true herb of the onion genus, and theyre actually a different species—Allium schoenoprasum—from scallions, bulb/spring onions, and shallots. Chives are typically used raw as a garnish for eggs, salads, and soups, and theyre delicious in herb dips and butters.
Do cats hate chives?
Onions, garlic, chives, and leeks are in the Allium family, and are poisonous to both dogs and cats if the dose is right (if they eat a single large serving or repeatedly nibble on small amounts over time).
Are leeks like onions?
Leeks are alliums, so theyre related to garlic, chives, shallots, and onions. Tasting them, you can tell. They have a sweet, oniony flavor that adds depth to soups, stews, pastas, and more! However, because theyre milder than most other alliums, I also like to enjoy them on their own.
