Chinese chives, chinese leek (Allium tuberosum)
Chinese chives are a feast for the eyes in our herb garden with their beautiful flowers (bloom from June to September) and reaches a height of approx. 50cm.
In the kitchen it is not only an important condiment in Asian cuisine but also a popular alternative to traditional garlic (if used fresh), with a similar flavor but still the typical odor on the breath. It is very suitable to prepare herb butter, fresh cheese with herbs and finely chopped in Tsatsiki, or also on foods prepared on the grill. You can also prepare it is a sauce with butter.
