Creamy Garlic Scape Soup

“Soup in the summer seems strange but this has a light, fresh green taste that is really enjoyable. Try it with grilled cheese sandwiches.”

  • 1 cup garlic scapes or garlic flowers, cut in 1/4 inche pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Ground pepper to taste
  1. Remove flower and top bit from garlic scapes. Cut into 1/4 inch slices.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a pot and gently cook the onion until soft and transparent, taking care that they don’t colour.
  3. Add the garlic flowers/scapes and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until just tender but still vibrantly green.
  4. Add chicken broth and milk, bring to boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Cool then puree.
  6. Reheat and serve with grilled cheese sandwiches.

Yield: 4-5 small servings
