Green Onions

IMG_1533.JPG

Did you know you can re grow green onions by simply placing the roots in water? I use green onions almost every day so this trick saves me time and money. Just replace the water every few days. If you don’t use them as often as I do, trim them every week or so. Hope you find this as helpful as I do!

I learned this recipe at a cooking class at Beehive Essentials in Spanish Fork Utah(www.healthyeatersclub.wordpress.com) and have loved it. I made a few small changes in seasonings so feel free to use your favorite spice in place of the chili powder or coriander. I make this recipe almost every week, it’s a staple in our home now. Enjoy!!
