Homegrown Garlic Scapes, Broccoli and Tilapia

My garlic has started to ‘flower’ which most folk call scapes. These are a bit lighter tasting than the garlic bulb and can be made into a pesto, put in soups or just sautéed.

The Brook Cook also has a great recipe for these: Seared Pork Chops with Garlic Scape Chimichurri


I wasn’t feeling that creative and it was getting late in the day to eat. Tilapia was on sale at the store and I had fresh scapes and broccoli from my garden. Yum!!

  1. We don’t tend to use the tops of garlic but I wish I’d read this post years ago. (where were you when I needed you) I usually grow the hard purple ones and they set flowers on the top and these turn into little purple bulbets. Can these be planted or should I use them for pesto?


Time to fire-up the chair-to-keyboard interface!!!
