What type of onion could be substituted for leeks to make a recipe lower in Vitamin K?

Could we lower the Vitamin K amount in the Potato and Three Onion Gratin by choosing another type of onion than leeks? Which type of onion would be best?

Dr. Gourmet Says...

fresh leeks in a wooden basket

This is a great question. There's a fair amount of Vitamin K in the leeks - about 38 micrograms (mcg) in the 3 ounces per serving in this recipe. Substituting a Vidalia or other sweet onion like a Walla Walla would be a great choice. If those are out of season, choosing a yellow onion would be perfect.

Thanks for writing,
