Green onions 小葱 (xiǎo cōng)

These onions have small white bulbs and long green stalks. To prepare them for cooking, slice off the bottom 1 inch of the root and discard. Some recipes call for the white parts and green parts to be added at separate times during cooking because they cook at different rates. They are very similar to scallions and can be used interchangeably.
