Grilled Garlic Scapes

​What’s a Garlic Scape?

A garlic scape is the flower bud of a garlic plant. It’s cut off before it blooms to promote growth of the garlic bulb.

More importantly, it’s freaking delicious.

Raw, it tastes just like a bulb of garlic. Based on how it cooks, it can either develop an asparagus-like flavor or a light roasted garlic flavor.

Personally, I think the best way to cook this is quickly roasting it in the oven or over the grill for just a few minutes. It’s important to note that the longer you cook the scape, the more it will lose it’s flavor.

The goal to cooking it is to just help it lose it’s harshness yet retain it’s delicious flavors. They’re so easy to cook, you won’t even believe the ingredients.


Ingredients

  • 1 Bunch Garlic Scapes
  • Grill Spray or Olive Oil

Directions

1. Preheat grill to high heat. Once it comes to temperature, spray the grill or brush with olive oil.
2. Lay garlic scapes out on the grill and let cook for 2-5 minutes until slightly browned, then flip and cook on the opposite side.

That’s it! Enjoy as a delicious side or snack!
