Scallion Pancake

This is seriously the easiest "Recipe" ever.  If you have ever had Korean bbq this is what a Korean Pancake is.

Ingredients:
Soy sauce
1/4 cup flour
2/3 cup water
scallions

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.  I use an entire bundle of scallions for this.  The mixture should be very very loose more like a liquid than an actual batter, even thinner than crepe batter.  I like to mix the soy sauce in before cooking so that the flavor is incorporated.  Use a cooking spray or vegetable oil to coat the bottom of a non stick skillet, and dump your mixture in after the oil is nice and hot. 
Wait till you see a crispy outside and bubbles forming before you flip it.  This actually takes a surprising amount of time.  Close to 20 minutes I would say, flip after about 10.  The scallions will be nice and soft and the dough turns out really smooth and slightly chewy, seriously one of the best textures ever.  I like to take it off the stove while the middle is still slightly moist, but that is totally up to you.  I have no idea how flour and water creates something so amazing.  
I guarantee you have seen people grow scallions on pinterest. Let me tell you it works completely !! They grow faster than weeds. Within 3 days you have a new harvest. Just put the root ends in water and be amazed.

What is your easy go to food that can be made from super simple ingredients ?
