Last weekend at the North Union Farmer's Market we picked up a new item. Garlic Scapes. I've seen them before and admired their twisty shape but never picked them up. I didn't really know what they were or how to cook them. But I was feeling adventurous and as it turns out there isn't much to it! The raw flavor is pretty intense but when cooked they mellow out. We've used them a few different times this week and they are the perfect onion-garlic flavor to add to any dish. My favorite way so far was on the grill. Here's what we (the husband) did.
Toss the garlic scapes in olive oil, salt and pepper. Put them on a hot grill until they are slightly charred and wilted. Eat. We ate them as is on the side but also put them on top of our veggie burgers. They added a nice new flavor. Check them out if you see them!
