Green Garlic, Coriander and Wasabi Dip

Green garlic, sometimes known as spring garlic, are the stalks of the garlic plant that are picked before the bulbs develop. At first glance they look like green onions, but one sniff will distinguish that unmistakable garlicky scent.  Green garlic can be used in any recipe where a milder garlic flavor is required.  In this recipe I’ve blended them into a dip that won’t leave you with breath that could slay a vampire.

  1. Fantastic!! Will try this. Looks yummy!

    Qualification for dummies (The Steward), is labneh the same as greek style yoghurt?

  2. Ok… thanks. When I first came, I wandered around for months thinking there is no buttermilk in this country. It’s all in a name :)

  3. I’ve got masses of garlic chives (which look a lot like this) in the pots in my garden. I adore any excuse to use sinus-clearing, addictive wasabi too.
