Tonight was our first foray into the not-oft used vegetables we got in our CSA share this week - scallions. Mr. ValleyWriter doesn't like onions, so I generally stay away from anything onion-related. But he said he was willing to try the scallions, so I took a cue from my friend Prof. Kitty's Ramp & Nettle Omelets. She said ramps were like scallions - and who can resist brie? - so I figured I'd give it a shot. I added ham to help make the hubby happy.
butterhead lettuce we also got in the share this week. I was very happy with how the omelettes turned out. The brie was so gooey and creamy - absolutely delicious. Mr. ValleyWriter, however, has not turned over a new leaf when it comes to onion-like vegetables. He quickly declared "the scallions just get in the way." Oh well, can't make them happy every time. But if you do like scallions or onions, give this combination a try. It's delish!
