What Are Garlic Scapes? | Garlic Scape Hummus

Garlic Scapes My favorite find at spring and summer farm markets are fresh garlic scapes. Garlic scapes are the stalk or stem of the garlic bulb. They have a delicious, garlicky flavor and you can use them just as you would fresh garlic. Scapes are a common ingredient in stir-fries and sautés (and hummus 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽)

Choosing & Storing Garlic Scapes

Scapes are long, thin (think garlicky green onions) and should be bright green with no blemishes. They’re sold by the bunch in late spring and early summer when they’re easily found at farmer’s markets. Store your scapes in the fridge in a resealable plastic. They should last for 2-3 weeks.

I have a thing for hummus, especially a garlicky hummus (receipts). This Garlic Scape Hummus is my summertime jam! It gives me the yum of hummus with an extra garlicky kick from the scapes. Make this and let me know how much you love it.

Rinse scapes and pat them dry before chopping.

Make sure beans are thoroughly drained before using. Excess liquid will give you a soupy hummus.
