Whole wheat savory biscuits made vegan. Top these Savory Biscuits with Scallions by Caroline Doucet with butter for a delicious snack or side dish. These biscuits are the perfect addition to a big dinner with family or friends.
9. Roasted Carrot Salad With Charred Scallion Cilantro Pesto
The roasted sweet carrots and caramel-y red onions paired with crunchy sweet corn in this Roasted Carrot Salad With Charred Scallion Cilantro Pesto by Zoe and Mia Lau is phenomenal. Corn kernels function as a healthier, cheaper substitute for the sweetness of dried fruits and the crunchiness of the nuts in salads. The charred scallion cilantro pesto is a sweet and vinegary sauce that is most commonly served with fresh seafood, but we think it tastes oh-so much better on this vegan salad.
10. Cheese and Scallion Potato Waffles
A waffle maker is a wonderful investment. How else would you be able to make these Cheese and Scallion Potato Waffles by Trine Rask?! They’re savory, cheesy, garlicky, and filled with potato-goodness. Serve these with a big dollop of guacamole on top for a yummy snack.

Here is a take on stuffing that doesn’t involve white bread or corn bread. Try out this Wild Rice Stuffing With Cranberry, Apricot, and Scallion by Catie Baumer Schwalb!
12. Spring Onion Tart With Cheesy Tofu Cream
This Spring Onion Tart With Cheesy Tofu Cream by Simon Malerba is a thing of beauty. It starts with a buckwheat and amaranth crust, though if you’re pressed for time, you can substitute for a pre-made crust. Next, it’s topped with a deliciously creamy, cheesy tofu filling followed by a layer of sliced spring onions. You can add whatever spices you like here, but turmeric and paprika are highly recommended, as they’re strong enough to bring flavor to the table, but subtle enough so that they do not overwhelm the other flavors at work.
13. Nettle Gnocchi with Dried Tomatoes and Spring Onions
Nettles can be used in the kitchen in soups, risottos, ravioli stuffing, pancakes, pasta pesto or simply sautéed as a side dish. In this case, they’re used for gnocchi! This delicious Nettle Gnocchi with Dried Tomatoes and Spring Onions by Valentina Chiappa is seasoned in a simple but tasty way.
14. Vietnamese Spring Rolls

We thought it’d be kinda fun to try our hand at creating these ne-Pan Singapore Noodles by Crazy Vegan Kitchen. Cue in my one-pan adaptation … of an adaptation… of noodles that don’t actually exist in Singapore! Made from rice vermicelli (thin rice noodles), curry powder, bean sprouts, bok choy, spring onion, carrots, red pepper, snow peas, and a ton of other nutritious and easy-to-get ingredients, I’m happy to say that this Singapore Noodles creation is a surefire noodle winner.
