About the Recipe

The story: Ready for a satisfying breakfast regardless of your dietary preferences? Try our Garlic Scape Scramble in either the vegan version or omnivore version (with eggs). Garlic scapes are a long curly stem that grows from hard necked garlic. It is, in fact, the garlic’s attempt to go to flower. If we leave it alone and do not remove the garlic scape, it will eventually straighten out and produce a purple flower that is delicious and edible. The down side to leaving them on there is that it reduces the size of the garlic bulb dramatically, so rather than let that happen, we cut them off in the month of June and enjoy them in various dishes. Now you will too!

6b. (Omnivore) If you are using eggs, whip them in a separate bowl and then pour into the scape/oil mixture

Finally:
