Green Garlic Recipes

Green garlic, also known as new garlic or spring garlic, is the young stalks of garlic before it forms bulbs.  The flavor is mild and the entire vegetable is edible.  It is great with other spring vegetables, such as peas and fava beans.

Cooking Tips:

  • Use in salads as a mild raw ingredient
  • When cooked, the garlic is even more mellow flavored and sweet
  • Can be used in recipes that call for scallions or leeks
  • Cut into strips and use as a beautiful garnish. You can sauté or fry.

I have collected a few recipes below.  Let me know your favorite way of eating green garlic and we can share online with other CSA members.
