SHOCKER! I'm posting on the weekend. Along with potato chips I'm also full of surprises. The reason you're getting this special weekend edition post is because the time frame for being able to buy or pick Garlic Scapes (the star of this post) is very short. VERY short.
A few days ago I showed you how to make Garlic Scape Pesto, which although very easy, is still a "recipe". You know. With ingredients.
If you'd like to jump on the garlic scape bandwagon in the easiest way possible, just grab yourself scapes, toss them in olive oil, salt and pepper, then grill them.
I like to grill the thinnest ones until they're pretty soft and charred. Yes. Charred. Not completely blackened, but you want some good, crisp charred areas. Once they're done salt and pepper again. If you're feeling especially gourmet ... grate or shave some parmesan cheese over them. HOLY CRAP.
So there you have it. My quick, not all that entertaining, but informative weekend post.
As you were.
