1. I received garlic scapes in my CSA, but I’m hesitant to use them because I always reek of garlic whenever I eat it. Do you know if eating the scapes has a similar effect?

      • Ahh, thanks for that! Maybe I’ll give them a try when I don’t have to be around people or better yet, if I want to repel obnoxious coworkers lol.

  2. Summer in the city and grilled garlic scapes – girl, you’re living the good life! I’m right there with you. I love pesto but these garlic scapes are like something out of a fairytale – way too pretty to be ground up!

  3. I love your description of grilling in the city. My sister lives there, and its always fun to hear her and her friends talk about their cooking adventures in small kitchens and out-of-the-way places. I’m going to have to search out scapes so I can try this recipe.

    • Hi Olga – garlic scapes are harvested from the garlic bulb during spring. I find them at local farmers’ markets and in my CSA box. I hope this helps!

  4. I love them! I have a new baby so am (sadly) not making it to any markets to procure them this year. My standbys used to be salad dressing – just a simple vinaigrette with scapes done in a food processor. So good.

  5. I recently tried garlic scapes for the first time. So glad I ate them simply roasted and salted because I was able to really taste them that way. And I am in love! I’ll follow your tip and massage them with oil next time.

  6. Tried these tonight — they were a BIG hit, even with my grandson who regarded then with suspicion until I compared them with eating snakes. Then, they were suddenly delicious!

  7. I am going to try it when my garlic gets there. In the meantime, I will try it with my leek scapes. Thanks, Alisa.
