In order to inject some umami (the 5th taste) into the "Everything But The..." line of baking mixes, we've come up with a lovely "Everything But The...eggs" recipe for scallion pancakes. Here's the recipe I tested today. I still have some more tweaking to do, but the pancakes had a soft, delectable texture while really delivering an punchy green onion flavor, accented by some sea salt.
Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil (or any vegetable you have around)
Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Once packaged, Everything But The will include all of these dry ingredients, pre-mixed, in our fantastic, eco-friendly containers so all you have to do is pour into the wet ingredients above!
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Dash of chili powder
Pinch of fresh ground black pepper
1 cup chopped scallions
Whisk everything together so that there are no lumps. The great part about the rice flour is it provides a smooth, thin consistency very quickly.
- Ponzu with lemon zest
- Teriyaki sauce with orange segments
- Soy sauce with grated ginger and cilantro
