Ingredient: Scallions

» Jump to recipes using Scallions as an ingredient



Freezing is a great way to preserve scallions for later recipes. Simply chop them…


Toss them in the freezer for a couple of hours on a cutting board, cookie sheet, or other flat surface. Then take them out and scoop them into your freezer bag before popping them back in the freezer.


The extra step of freezing before bagging ensures that your scallions won’t stick together in the freezer bag, making it simple to take in out only what you need as you need it. Never again will scallions waste!


Recipes Using Scallions

Eggroll In a Bowl

Not sure what to do with that cabbage? Eggroll in a Bowl is a quick and flexible weeknight option, and when I say flexible, I mean FLEXIBLE! You can make this paleo, gluten free, vegetarian…. So grab your cabbage, carrots, and protein of your choosing, and the rest is up to you and your imagination. It’s also a healthy (and dare I say tastier) alternative to the deep fried crunchy version from your favorite takeout joint, so pull up some ingredients and make it your own!

Bok Choy Salad

Another ingredient not on the traditional “staples” list, ramen noodles! They add a special crunch to this salad! Be careful, it’s addictive!

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

This is an Anderson family favorite, perfect for when the spaghetti squash season rolls around. Soy sauce or tamari can substitute fish sauce if you want to keep it vegetarian. Tamarind paste can be substituted for rice wine vinegar as well, but the real deal is best. Give yourself time to drain the tofu and make the squash, but the pad thai itself is quick to make.
