Grilled Garlic Scapes


Steam them! Roast them! Grill them! Just don’t miss the tiny window of opportunity to enjoy fresh GARLIC SCAPES!

 

Garlic scapes are an unusual treat most often found at farmers’ markets, and only for a short time at the start of summer. They are the soft stems and unopened flower buds of hard-neck garlic varieties. Farmers snip off the stem to produce a more robust garlic bulb.

Thankfully, garlic scapes never go to waste – in fact they’ve become a trendy taste sensation. Here are some tips for preparing a delicious summer side dish that I hope inspires you to find and prepare garlic scapes yourself – I know you’re going to love the reaction when you serve them to someone who has never tried them before!

1) When buying garlic scapes, look for them early in the season – they tend to be thin and more tender than the late-season finds.

2) Preparing garlic scapes for use in recipes is super-easy. Rinse them, trim off the ends and then trim the tips of the buds. Try to use your prepared scapes in a recipe within a day or two of purchase.

3) Don’t overthink how to prepare them. The mildly sweet, subtle garlic flavour comes out when you roast, steam or grill them. You can then further brighten the flavour profile with nothing more than salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Garlic scapes are a remarkably easy-to-prepare seasonal treat that make a perfect side dish to any summer meal.

 

Ingredients & Amounts

  • 2 pounds fresh garlic scapes, washed and trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • juice from 1 lemon, seeds removed
  • salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat barbecue to medium-high.
  2. Wash garlic scapes. Trim off the ends of the stems and the tips of the flower buds.
  3. Transfer prepared scapes into a bowl. Add olive oil, a pinch of salt and toss.
  4. Transfer scapes into a barbecue basket and place onto barbecue. Grill scapes turning occasionally until they wilt and char slightly.
  5. Carefully remove cooked scapes from barbecue transferring to a bowl. Squeeze on lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Toss and then serve immediately.
