Unless the recipe specifies, usually all of it. All the asian cooking recipes and videos I've seen use all of it.. maybe other cultures don't, though?

Some recipes specify, often cooking white part, reserving green for end of cooking, or garnish. But like creamtea, I'm a fan of minimizing waste. (Go, creamtea).

its the white part, often the recipe says "including some of the green." But now I try to use as much as possible so as not to waste. Often, I keep a plastic bag in the freezer and toss odds and ends of vegetables to make soup stock.
