WOOOHOOOO! It's Foodie Friday! I love to eat and I love Fridays:)
My garden is finally growing like mad and I have loads of fresh lovely greens like lettuce and kale. I'm also cutting off my garlic scapes so I can harvest big lovely bulbs at the end of the summer.
Garlic scapes are essentially garlic flowers. If you leave them you'll still get garlic bulbs, but they might not be as big as they could be. You can pull apart the bulblets in the scapes after they open and plant them now for garlic next year.
My favorite thing to do is EAT THEM! Most of the time I just chop up the flower and about an inch or so of the stem above and below the flower. They have a bright and mellow garlic flavor. You can use them just like you would garlic.
OR you can make them the star of a meal. I have shared a few garlic scape recipes in the past and today I'm sharing a link for 28 yes that's TWENTY EIGHT garlic scape recipes. If you like Pesto, try garlic scape pesto. Try making a delicious garlic scape vinaigrette to eat with your amazing homegrown paleo salad.
Of course, if you don't have a garden you can order garlic scapes and all the summer greens you can eat from Rocky Creek Farm which is just 1 mile east of the gym. Happy Eating! Be sure to click on the photo below to get a bunch of garlic scape recipes.
