Garlic Scape-White Bean Dip

Garlic Scapes. What’s not to love? Being Korean, I love anything garlicky, and I can’t believe this summer was the first time that I met this vegetable! I got a delivery of garlic scapes from my CSA, and at first had no idea what the heck they were. They looked like green beans crossed with green onion on steroids.

But once I tasted them, it was like a new chapter in my life. Where have these been my entire life?!  While I might think that there is nothing better than munching in raw garlic scapes, I decided to whip up a batch of garlic scape dip cut with some white beans for my less garlicky loving friends.

Garlic Scape White Bean Dip

1 bunch garlic scapes

1 can of white beans (any type is fine — use dried beans if you have more time)

olive oil, salt and pepper to taste

Crusty bread for dipping

This dip is crazy easy — just whir everything together in a food processor. I added some Parmesan cheese to the mix at the very end as well.
