Growing Green Onion or Scallion

Green onion or scallion is very easy to grow at home. You just need a pot of all-purpose soil and the white part of the green onion with the roots (bulbs)…and you will have green onion throughout the year.

When in need of some green onion for your cooking just cut it in between the white and green part of the onion and leave the remaining part with the bulb in the soil. After a few days you will see them growing again.

Buy Green onion at the local grocery store.

Cut approximately ½ in from the root, making sure that bulbs are intact

Place the bulbs into the soil making sure that the roots are side down and leave approximately ¼ in of onion plant above the soil.

Place the pot in a sunny area or window and water every time the soil is dry.

Use the green onion as you desire by harvesting and leaving approximately ¼ inch of the plant above the soil.

The green onion will grow over and over.

I hope you try this simple method of growing green onion at home.

Fried Rice with Leftover Ham

Well, you must be asking where did the leftover ham come from? I must admit that ham was leftover from Easter dinner, after having so much ham, we just could not see ham anymore, I still had one more chunk left, so I froze it. Now after a while I just thought of reviving the piece of ham that was stored in the freezer…to make the story short, I decided to use the ham to make this simple and easy fried rice, and of course the rice was leftover as well. If you do not have ham, you can always substitute for chicken, sausage or if you prefer, no meat at all :-).

Ingredients:

2 eggs, lightly scrambled
½ bunch of green onion finely chopped
½ large onion chopped
2 cups of frozen vegetables
3/4 to 1 cup ham, chopped
3 cups cooked rice
2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Sautee the green onion and onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil, once lightly browned add the ham. Stir fry for a couple of minutes and reserve.

Add the remaining olive oil in the pan and stir in the rice, make sure that is well mixed and loose, add the cooked frozen vegetables, egg and ham.

Stir gently until well mixed.

Serve hot.
