This recipe looks amazing and can't wait to try it. It calls for four bunches of scallions. Is that four scallions? If not, how many scallions would you say there are in a bunch? If you shop at Whole Foods, you might get eight. If you get them at Trader Joe's the bag of scallions is enormous and there might be 12 or more.


  • PS - I'm not on the Milk Street staff - not sure why I'm getting that badge.

  • Mark, Thanks for your question. A standard bunch of scallions is usually 7, 8 at the most. So this recipe would call for 28 to to 32 scallions. Sound like a lot but that’s is the corrrect amount.
