leftover cilantro and scallions

Please help. I have too much leftover cilantro and scallions, and I'm not sure what to do with it all. Any suggestions?

  1. I recently had a lot of herbs - cilantro, mint, chives, basil - as well as some scallions, and made a "Vietnamese" noodle dish - cooked flat rice noodles in chicken broth that I'd doctored up with some scallions (simmered) - then tossed the noodles with the herbs and added some broth. I did have some leftover pork that I'd cooked to fill summer rolls, but I think it would be almost as good with out. Squeezed some lime juice on top. I think it would be good with just cilantro and scallions. I also sprinkled some chopped roasted peanuts on top.

     
    1. My hubby made this earlier this week and it was excellent:

      I also LOVE Jamie Oliver's homemade green curry:

      Happy cooking!

      1. make cilantro pesto or hummus with cilantro and the scallions

        1. corn salsa: grilled or cooked corn, shucked, avocado, lime, cilantro, scallion, tomatoes, serrano or jalepenos; or

          chicken or shrimp quesadillas with avocado, scallion, serrano peppers, lime, cilantro and shredded cheese.

          1. oh, you could also make cilantro rice

                Yep, was going to suggest Robert Lauriston's great recipe for Cilantro Rice on this board...only problem might be the fresh jalapeno in it if you're concerned about the salmonella updates. But that's one of our favorite rice dishes ever!
