This is a great way to use garlic scapes - the curly green tops of garlic that you can get from the farm early in the growing season! The spinach cuts down some of the super-strong garlic flavor. Use as a sauce for hot pasta, a spread for sandwiches, mixed with mayo for a spread or dip, mixed with ranch dressing for salad. The possibilities are endless!

Loved it. Didn’t measure really but used ingredient list. Fresh garlic scapes and spinach from my local organic CSA box. Had never used garlic scapes before. A winner! Read More
