By Annabelle Waugh

Onions make almost anything better when you know how to choose the right one for your dish

Every good recipe starts with an onion. Okay, maybe not chocolate cake. But onions are the foundation of nearly all of the world’s cuisines for a good reason. They are full of aromatic flavor that can be taken in so many different directions depending on how you prepare them: they can be brash and bossy, or tender, mild and sweet, or even sneakily hold up a dish while remaining completely invisible. They are one of the tastiest, most versatile vegetables around.

Here are eight of our favorites and the best ways to cook with them

  1. Yellow onions
  2. White onions
  3. Red Onions
  4. Sweet onions
  5. Leeks
  6. Green onions (scallions)
