Did you know that chives are the cultivated descendant of a wild plant of central Europe which is found in rocky and hilly regions even today?
I have grown chives in my backyard and was pleasantly surprised that it is pretty easy to grow them. I planted them in late spring and enjoyed them in the summer by adding chopped chives to garnish some of the lentil soups I made. I add them to pastas and they look and taste great.
I would just cut a small cluster needed for my recipe and they just grew back in a few days.
Gau Wong are blanched Chinese chives that do not have color but are tender. They are added to noodles etc.
Suggestion: Add freshly chopped chives to your soup because the crisp texture enhances the flavor of your dish.
