Green Onion Cakes!

Next, week I will be in Minneapolis for a conference and because of this I have not been buying groceries.  I also wanted to use up the groceries that I already have.  I had a bunch of green onions left over from my Korean Stir Fried Noddles.  What can I make with these?  Green Onion Cakes!  I searched the internet and found a recipe I liked at Momofukufor2.  I followed the recipe exactly so head over there and take a look.  Just a heads up my fat of choice was butter. Yummy Yummy Butter.
Dough ready to go - moist but not sticky.

Whole lot of green onions

Rolled as thin as I could get it . . . .

Coiled up, sorry the picture is bad my camera battery died right after this.

Squashed cakes taken with ipod!

Out of the pan and on to the paper toweling.

Don't they look yummy!

It is a pretty simple recipe.  Just kind of mix and assemble.  It was super super easy.  I would put your oil a bit lower than suggested (more like medium) to ensure that the cakes cook all the way through and aren't too gummy in the middle.  They turned out delicious.  I also made a sauce.  Equal parts seasoned rice vinegar and soy sauce and a bit to red pepper paste for heat.  Yum!


  1. They do look yummy! I'm going to have to give them a try; I bet they'd go great with soup.

  2. Green onion / chive pancakes are seriously my favorite. So easy to make! And if you make too many, you can slice up the remaining pancakes and chuck them into an Asian flavored soup :) More people should make these pancakes! :D

  3. What a lovely presentation and a great use of leftover ingredients!

  4. I was very surprised by how easy they were. I fed them to friends too and they also enjoyed them.
