What to do with a Bunch of Onions

Today I baked blueberry muffins for breakfast.
For lunch I made scallion pancakes.
And then I whipped up some mango salsa for dinner.

I also killed a fly with a kitchen towel.

I have skills.


Scallion Pancakes with Dipping Sauce

2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 to 1 cup hot water
sesame oil, divided
scallions, finely chopped (a lot of scallions, approximately a bunch)

Dipping Sauce:
2 parts soy sauce
1 part rice vinegar
1/2 part sesame oil
1 part sugar

To make pancakes, combine flour and salt in bowl.  Add water (with 1 teaspoon oil) to flour and stir/fluff with fork. Turn dough out on floured board and knead, adding flour until no longer sticky.  With rolling pin, roll dough thin and spread with scallions.  Roll dough up like a jelly roll, coil it around itself, smash it, roll it out again, and then jelly roll it.  Cut into 6-10 pieces.  Flatten and stretch dough out thin.  Pour some oil in frying pan. Pan-fry (not deep-fry) each disc of dough.  Cut into triangles and eat with dipping sauce.

For sauce, mix all ingredients together.  Add your own favorites: chili sauce, green onions, ginger, garlic, etc.  Can use sauce on anything: shui jiao, gyoza, egg rolls, etc.
