Ginger or ginger root is the rhizome of the plant Zingiber offinale, consumed as a spice, medicine or delicacy. Ginger cultivation began in South Asia and has since spread to East Africa and the Caribbean.

Onion is used as a vegetable and is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium. This genus also contains several other species variously referred to as onions and cultivated for food.

Chopped scallions

The onion plant has a fan of hollow, bluish-green leaves and the bulb at the base of the plant begins to swell when a certain day-length is reached. Onions are cultivated and used around the world. As a foodstuff they are usually served cooked, as a vegetable or part of a prepared savoury dish, but can also be eaten raw or used to make pickles or chutneys. Consumption is believed to benefit health in that onions contain phenolics and flavonoid.

Green onions are young shoots of bulb onions, and are milder tasting than large bulb onions. They have a small, not fully developed white bulb end with long green stalks. Both parts are edible.
