Green onions only cost about a dollar per bunch….so it’s not really about saving money as much as it is about convenience. I like having them to throw on top of things. A baked potato or a salad. They add a nice splash of color and flavor to most foods. Now I just snip a few whenever I want. They grow SOOO fast. I just rinse the glass and give fresh water every few days. Really simple. I love simple.
Did you know this little trick? I didn’t!
So many of my recipes call for a stalk or two of green onion. But, I don’t always have them. I always seem to forget to buy them, just don’t think about it. Well, not a problem anymore! I read that you can just re-grow them! (I can’t remember where I saw it – probably Pinterest….I would link to it, but Pinterest took the search feature off! What gives?)
The last time I remembered to buy green onions for a recipe, I didn’t throw away the roots.
I stuck those babies in a glass of water on my window sill.
Three days later I had these.
A week later I had these!!
