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.
