We’re big onion fans over at Wahanda. It's not just their scrumptious complimentary taste we love; health-wise the mighty onion is something to be awed at. Britain’s most-used vegetable is filled with quercetin and sulphur compounds – adored by the body.
Even though it creates questionable breath, the understated onion encourages good oral health, fighting bacteria that can cause tooth decay. The flavonoid, quercetin, found in its flesh help to boost the immune system as well as acting as a preventive for colon cancer. Its antibacterial properties prevent illnesses such as E. coli and salmonella. Encouraging cardiovascular function, the onion controls glucose and offers sinus relief to even the stuffiest of systems. This extremely valuable veg is a health staple.
If you’re tired of melting your onion into a tomato sauce, or burning it on a BBQ then we’ve a delicious onion and bread summer salad. Perfect for lunch or squished into Tupperware and taken on a picnic. What’s more – the longer you leave the salad, the more intense the flavours become so you needn’t worry about eating it immediately.
Preparation time: 1 hour

Tip: If you don’t have very stale bread then rip your bread and bake in the over for 7 – 10 minutes until beginning to crisp.
