Chive is family of the onions but maybe a bit less stronger. It is great taste maker in salads or mixing with cream cheese or other meals of course. It grows very easy, I planted years ago in a big pot in my garden and since then every spring I get this gorgeous plant with beautiful flowers, bees love the flower, that last until almost winter. You only need to give water and once a year some vitamins. For the rest be careful because it can spread very easy around.

Of course has also some proteins and vitamins, maybe not so strong in quantity as other herbs but still, healthy to use. For a portion of 20 grams:

  • Vitamin B1: 0.03 mg
  • Vitamin B2: 0.03 mg
  • Vitamin C: 9.4 mg
  • Sodium: 1 mg
  • Potassium: 86 mg
  • Calcium: 26 mg
  • Fosfor: 15 mg
  • Magnesium: 6 mg
  • Fibers: 0.4 g
