By placing the green onion leftover with roots on water, you will be able to regrow new ones in just a few days… Before I share this week post which has no recipe I just want to let you know that I will be of off for a couple of weeks, and will not be able to make my weekly visit to your blog, but will definitely catch up once I am back…in the meantime I will leave you with this simple way to regrow green onion or scallion.

First of all I want to apologize if I did not visit you this week…I have been very busy at work and I will try to come see as soon as things gets calmer. This spring I have committed to do many new things and one of them is sprout seeds…I already sprouted chia seeds, which requires much more work as the seeds need to be in a terracotta dish. The alfalfa seed, broccoli, mustard, radish and many other are much easier to handle…it is a lot of fun to watch the seeds turn into microgreens… There is really no recipe for it…and the whole procedure is very simple, you just need patience as can take from 6 to 10 days [...]

This recipe is based on the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François, which I got a while ago and have been using its recipes here and there. I made bread, rolls and even flatbreads…the basic recipe is very simple and easy to follow. Of course being “me” I am never content in just following recipes, I always have to come up with something new…so I decided to make flatbreads with the dough…the variation are limitless, with garlic and parsley, ground pepper and parmesan, ham and cheese and the list goes on and on… Today I am sharing with you two versions of the dough, white and whole wheat, although I personally like [...]
