Two Rap-SCALLION recipes for you - no, they're actually good!

From Webster: rap·scal·lion - "a disreputable person; rascal or rogue" >>>OR..."one who is playfully mischievous" = either way, these onion recipes are super-easy, and a great way to use these in-season gems! CHINESE NOODLES WITH SCALLIONS >>>INGREDIENTS: 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked linguini pasta 1/2 cup butter 1 (9.25 ounce) container cashews 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 bunch green onions, diced (5-6) >>>DIRECTIONS: Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place linguini in the pot, cook 9 to 11 minutes, until al dente, and drain. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat, and saute the cashews 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Mix in the cooked linguini, teriyaki sauce, ginger, and green onion, and continue to cook and stir until heated through. *TIP* I like to add in a sprinkle or two of garlic powder too! ************************************** SIMPLE BEAN SOUP WITH SCALLIONS >>>INGREDIENTS: 1 bag (1 lb.) dry pinto beans 1 ham steak 5-6 scallions, chopped with scissors 1 Tbsp. bacon grease pepper to taste >>>DIRECTIONS: Add all to a large pot, and cover with twice as much water as there are beans. Cook on high until boiling, then turn down and simmer 3 hours. Add more water as needed during cooking to keep a soup-type consistency. Remove bones and fat, stir, smash a few beans up to thicken the soup. Add more pepper to taste (I like a lot!), and serve hot. ************************************************** "Good intentions are not enough. They've never put an onion in the soup yet." ~Sonya Levien
