Vegetarian Life Hack: Regrow Green Onions

No matter what your diet looks like, you probably incorporate green onions in some of your meals. If you're a veggie - you probably include them in a ton of different dishes.

Consider this little life hack: regrow your green onions in a window sill. 

I know that green onions cost very little, but this is still a fun and easy way to reduce, reuse, recycle! The onions will grow and you can use them as needed for about a month. Awesome!

Onion Regrow - DAY ONE
The instructions are very simple:

1. Cut and use green onion as part of a meal, leaving the root system, bulb and about 2 inches of the stem. (See photo.) If you are cooking the white part, this obviously won't work.

2. Fill a small jar or glass with about two inches of cool, clean water.

3. Place the green onions in the jar and set in a sunny window. 

4. Change the water daily.

5. Use the onion as often as you want - a gift that truly keeps on giving! VOILA!


  1. Whaaaat I had no idea this could be done! I LOVE green onions and pretty much put them in everything. I'm definitely going to try this!

    1. I know! That's how I felt when my friend told me to try it - and just like magic, it worked. :)

  2. OMG! Why don't I do this?! Love it...thank you!!

  3. You're welcome. I get so excited to check on it everyday because it literally grows inches in such a short time. :) Have fun.
