green onion recipes

This morning, I harvested over 100 green onions to send to the farmer's market with our partners at WindDance farm, and there are still dozens more in the field. Time to post a couple good green onion recipes!

P.S. I also sent these recipes out to our market email subscribers. What? You didn't know we sent out a market email? Well, if you're local and you'd like to get an email about what we'll have at market each week, let me know and I'd be happy to sign you up! :-)

Sauteed Fresh Green Onions

This recipe is as simple as can be, but really brings out the sweetness of fresh spring onions.


Green onions, with tops cut off to 2 inches above onion (reserve tops for green onion dip!)

Olive oil

1 Tbls. butter (optional)

Sea Salt



Wash and dry onions

Cut off green tops leaving only about an inch or two above bulb

Heat large fry pan to medium

Swirl oil once or twice around pan

Add butter, if desired

Add onions and stir gently until slightly brown

Remove from pan and add kosher salt and white pepper to taste

Serve as a side dish - great with new potatoes!

Green Onion Dip

Mix into sour cream or yogurt:

Chopped green onion tops

Chopped garlic scapes


Sea Salt
