I like the term spring onions. :-) I grew up calling them green onions, but where I live now everyone says scallions.

As for growing "regular" onions... I tried once and it was a fiasco! Never tried growing these guys, though, so maybe I should.


Quoting marney.p:

In Australia we call them spring onions. I grow them because they are easier to grow here than onions. I use them as I would an onion. In soups and stirfrys.

Thank you for the information! :)

Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

Kind of, although the flavor and texture is quite different... I would call them green onions, actually, and they are a version of onions. (In New England they call them scallions, and I wasn't sure which term was more common.)


Quoting TigerofMu:

I don't know.  Scallions are not common around here...but they are like onions, right?

I definitely recommend chopping them up and tossing into a stir fry, eggs, etc. I'll include them in my fried rice tonight

Chinese Coleslaw

1 head Cabbage

1 bunch of Sacallions

2 packages Ramen noodles

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/4 cup butter

Slice cabbage and onions and mix together.  Break apart noodles ~ saute noodles, sesame seeds, and almonds in butter.  *Watch carefully - once they start brown, they can burn fairly quickly.

Dressing:

1 cup oil (olive or veg works best...)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup Red Wine vinegar

2 Tblsp Soy Sauce

Mix together all ingredients....

Mix cabbage and onions w/ noodle mizture.  Toss with dressing just before serving... Makes a large amount - so great to take to pot lucks.  I also sometimes 1/2 the recipe if just making it for the family.

Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

Ooh, what is Chinese coleslaw? Sounds like something we might enjoy...


Quoting MomofHDFandNWF:

I use scallions in my "Chinese Coleslaw" recipe... Mmmm... Not to mention stirfries and potato salad.

I use them in stir fries, salads or eat them plain with some ranch dip.
