This sounds delicious & nutritious! … but could I use chives instead of the raw red onion?(red onion wreaks havoc on my gerd!!) Or is there there another substitute?

Hi Cindy! We recommend subbing the red onion for chopped leeks or shallots if those do alright on your stomach. Chives would likely as well though if that’s the best option for you!

I LOVE this so much! But keep kind of guessing on the red onion. 1/8 of an onion or 1/8 of a cup? Or just enough to taste?‍♀️
