I make these Green Pancakes from Yotam Ottolenghi's Plenty More - http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2008/mar/22/foodanddrink.shopping2. They have the added bonus of being a good way to use up any excess leafy greens you have also, and I've gone as far as to use them as a hamburger bun.

At this point in the year I'm done with supermarket onions. Just, done. So I use spring onions and their tops whenever an onion is called for. Does it change the flavor, even the texture? Sure. But it works. I saute them, add them to braises, etc. Of course, they're great if you're making stock or cooking beans.

I grill them , slice them up and use them as an accent to whatever I am making that week. topping for chicken fajitas, teriyaki salmon, skirt steak. i stick the roots in my herb pots and let them grow back.

The great thing about spring onions is you can grow more from the leftover roots after you cut them down for cooking use. Just add roots to a container with 1/4 cup of water. You'll be surprised at how quickly the onions will grow back!
