lemongrass- can I use the green parts?

phoenikia | Aug 15, 2006 04:49 AM

It seems like every recipe I find tells me to use the white parts of the lemongrass. I planted some in May, and the blades of grass are now almost 2 feet tall, but they are still slim compared to the stalks you find at the grocery store, and I don't see any white parts developing yet. Can I use the green parts in any recipes instead? If so, do you have any recipes you would suggest?
