Summer Medley with Garlic Scapes

The beginning of summer is a great time of year for fresh garlic scapes. These vibrant, green, curly stalks of garlic tops impart a great garlicky flavour but are mild enough to use in salads, soups, pasta sauces, and hold their own as a main ingredient in vegetable stir-fries.

They’re nutritious (vitamin K, folate, vitamin C) and provide a different take and texture on garlic in your everyday recipes.

Simple. Fresh. Delicious.
