I have a question about the recipe "Ricotta Spoonable" from Dorie Greenspan. The directions say to stir in the scallions with the shallots but there are no scallions listed in the ingredients. How much, and assuming they are minced ? Chopped?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
This is the second time in as many weeks that this question has been posed about this specific recipe.
For reasons unknown, it appears no one has bothered to fix this recipe so here is my original reply verbatim.
When you see a mangled recipe (not just here at Food52), the first thing to do is to check if the author has posted it elsewhere on the Internet. You can click on the author's name and often their profile will have a URL for their own personal site/blog.
In this case, the recipe is not on the author's blog.
Plan B is to enlist the help of an Internet search engine. In this case typing in "Dorie Greenspan ricotta" gave me some results, the top one being the recipe posted at TheKitchn.com:
The missing ingredient is:
2 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
Unfortunately today's online writers do an incredibly poor job at copyediting, so readers are frequently left scratching their heads -- not just about food recipes -- but on many instructional articles pertaining to all sorts of topics.
Anyhow best of luck.
