Nutritional Benefits of Onion Skins



The papery skin contains more antioxidants than the onion itself. It's especially rich in quercetin, which may reduce blood pressure and prevent arterial plaque.

How to eat them: Simmer in stocks, soups, and stews for additional flavor; discard the skins before serving.
