11 Ways to Use Scallions
Young onions, including scallions, are everywhere at the farmers’ market right now. Milder than their more mature counterparts, they’re great cooked or raw as a garnish, a flavoring or a side dish. Here are 11 ways to use this unsung kitchen hero.
1. Pancake. Make a version of this addictive but often greasy Chinese-restaurant classic with pizza dough, or use an eggy batter, much like a Dutch baby.
4. Noodles. Cut scallions crosswise into 1-inch pieces to stir-fry with noodle dishes.
8. Dumplings. Add scallions to juicy pork Asian dumplings.
10. Salad. Thinly slice scallions lengthwise to create feathery strips to toss with herbs and dressing.
