One of my guilty pleasures is going to The Pike Place Market to my secret corner. No matter how crazy my day is, if I am downtown, I like to stop at Corner Produce. In the corner of the corner, there are dollar bags (I can’t believe I am sharing this), little bags of imperfect produce all priced at a dollar. If you get there in the morning, you get some really good stuff. A few times I got 4 peppers for a dollar.
I decide what I am making for dinner only after I fill my purse with some one dollar specials. Friday morning, I saw two very generous bags of scallions in the dollar section and decided to make one of my favorite vegetable recipes, baked scallions.
The taste of baked scallions is very different from raw scallions. The taste is soft and almost sweet.
Baked Scallions with Tahini
Your favorite salt (I use Secret Stash Salts Nicoise Salt)
1. Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Put the scallions on a baking sheet.
3. Drizzle the olive oil on top.
4. Scatter the fresh thyme on top.
5. Season with salt and pepper.
6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until soft. Drizzle with Tahini.
Notes: I really like using flavored salts and my friend Janna is the mastermind behind Secret Stash Salts along with her partner Joseph. These salts give it that extra flavor that makes the taste pop. You can use any salt you want to use.
