Garlic scapes are delicious steamed, stir fried or sautéed as you would asparagus (usually cut into shorter lengths). Both the long stems and plump seed bulbs are edible. Try them as an exciting alternative to asparagus or green beans or add them to puree recipes (like pesto) as a milder, friendlier alternative to actual garlic cloves.
They can also be finely chopped and used as an onion substitute in some recipes, and pair well with butter and other milder garlic-friendly flavors like lemon (try mixing lemon juice into homemade mayonnaise!), cream, eggs, leeks, wild mushrooms, and tomatoes.
