This is the 5th week of CSA, unbelievable, how fast summer is passing by. We are getting lots of scallions and they look so beautiful, fresh, they smell awesome, how can you let this go unused? I found this wonderful recipe from Gourmet Magazine and I want to share it with you. It calls for 1 cup of chopped scallions, I would use an additional 1/2 cup next time.
Serve it with sauteed spinach, kale or beet greens and you will have a wonderful complete meal!
