Garlic chives are graceful herbs with pretty white flowers. The combination of a chive-like appearance and strong garlic flavour makes garlic chives a popular seasoning.

Chopped fresh, garlic chives are found in recipes for Chinese dishes including stir-fries, and they are used in Japanese cuisine as well.

The Chinese have been growing and cooking with garlic chives for at least 3,000 years, dating back to the Chou dynasty (1027 BC to 256 BC).

But the popularity of this herb extends beyond China. Japanese cooks call garlic chives “nira” and use them frequently in meat and seafood recipes.

Their garlicky flavour enhances cooked dishes, particularly ones where the food is slowly simmered in a sauce, such as cooked stews or soups, or in stuffing.

Use them also to add flavour to stir-fries. They go particularly well with eggs and seafood—you’ll often find them paired with scrambled eggs or prawns.
