Garlic scapes are like curly cords of garlicky grass that give incredible depth of flavor to just about anything they touch. Scapes are young, green shoots that emerge from garlic plants early in their development, and give a fresh, herbaceous hint of chivey garlic to meals, compound butters, and next-level green juices.
If you’ve never had the pleasure of adding garlic scapes to your favorite dishes, you’re in for a real treat. Especially since they unfurl from garlic plants in the spring for a very short time, you’ll be grilling these and chopping them into soups, veggie recipes and braised greens like there’s no tomorrow!
