Garlic scapes are the tender, green shoots that grow from the top of garlic plants. They are a seasonal vegetable that is harvested in the late spring or early summer, typically before the garlic bulbs are fully mature. Garlic scapes have a distinct, garlicky flavor that is slightly milder than garlic cloves, but still adds a delicious depth of flavor to dishes. They have a crisp texture that is similar to asparagus or green beans, making them a versatile ingredient in a wide range of recipes. Garlic scapes are also highly nutritious, containing vitamins C and E, as well as antioxidants.
