Vegan Garlic Scape Pasta Recipe

As spring is in full swing here in Kentucky, I wanted to share a delicious recipe that includes a vegetable that is only available this time of the year: garlic scapes!

If you’ve never eaten garlic scapes, prepare to fall in love.

Garlic scapes are thin, vibrant green stalks that grow from the garlic bulb. They are long, curvy, and kind of look like a cross between chives and scallions. 

Their mild garlic flavor is perfect for adding a unique twist to your dishes and perfect for this simple recipe for Vegan Garlic Scape Pasta. Not only is it delicious and sure to please the whole family, it is vegan and can be prepared in 20 minutes. Perfect for a busy weeknight meal.
