Ideas to use up a very large bunch of Chinese Chives (green)

+1 for pancakes!
I made these pancakes with the chives instead of onions, which are super simple- make them the size of regular pancakes so they’re easier to flip. You can use miso paste if you don’t have doenjang. It’s going to look like a tiny amount of batter and it will never hold together but magically it does work. I made a bunch to use a lot of the chives and leftovers the next day rewarmed well in a pan (I wouldn’t microwave or freeze).
You could top them with an egg and serve with some rice and kimchi for an easy meal

I love Chinese chive pockets! The recipe I’ve used is from Andrea Nguyen’s Asian Tofu, but here’s a different online recipe: https://www.chinasichuanfood.com/chive-pancake/
