You’ll need:
1 bunch of scallions, chopped
1 to 2 tblsp oil
A pinch of salt

Chop up 1 bunch of scallions.


1. Pour about 1 or 2 tblsp of plain oil (olive oil is too strong in flavor for this) into a pan on medium-high heat. You don’t need too much oil as the onions will release plenty of moisture.
