Use chopped dried onions in any recipe that calls for fresh onions. If the recipe contains liquid, as in a soup, slow-cooked stew, curry or salad dressing, just throw the dried onions in when you add the liquid. You only need two tablespoons of chopped dried onion to equal 1/2 cup chopped fresh onion.
The onion plant (Allium cepa), also known as the bulb onion or common onion, is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium. It was first officially described by Carl Linnaeus in his 1753 work Species Plantarum.
