Oh garlic scape, where have you been all my life?!?! I can’t believe I have never heard of them before– let alone never tried them until today… The flavor is of a soft, velvety garlic with a hint of green… hope this computes with you because this is what I describe it as. It still has a very slight bite of garlic but then it mellows out to velvet… picture it? When I saw these I squealed with glee (to myself of course) and then I was on a mission. My mission was to try to create a dish that would highlight a flavor that I did not know about. Lucky for me (and you) the market also had an abundance of exotic mushrooms too. I can’t think of a more perfect marriage of flavors than mushrooms and garlic!
So -going on my gut feeling that this is a match made in culinary heaven, I bought a variety of mushrooms and the scapes to create my MUSHROOM MEDLEY SCAPE SOUP. Not to brag but I was right!
