There were some green onion in my CSA box this week. I normally use them for stir fries or salads. I decided to break from my norm and try something totally different.
I have been seeing Chinese green onion pancakes all over the internet. Interesting concept, but most of the recipes involved frying. I pretty much have cut out fried foods from my diet, so I played around and came up with a flat bread.
This recipe is super simple. It takes five minutes on the grill to cook them, and they are absolutely fantastic.
I plan on making these again when cucumbers start showing up in my box. Ever since I went to Greek fest in Milwaukee, I’ve fallen in love with Souvlaki. These would be perfect with some grilled pork and Tzatziki Sauce. (Stay tuned for that recipe.)
- 3 C of flour (I used bread flour, but AP would work just fine)
- 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 bunch (5-6) green onions, finely chopped
- 1 C water
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Put the dough hook on your kitchenaid mixer, if you have one. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix with the dough hook until combined.
Add the wet ingredients and onions and let the dough work for 5 mins or until dough is smooth and elastic.
Wrap the dough in plastic and let rest for 30 mins.
Cut dough into equal pieces and roll into balls.
Roll balls out with rolling pin into discs of desired thickness.
Put on hot grill and grill for 2-3 mins on each side. Once you get good grill marks on one side, flip over. These do not take long to cook at all.
I topped this batch with sour cream and left over onions. They were amazing.
