roasted garlic spears

14 Jun

Garlic spears are the flower tops from elephant garlic.  They have a very mild garlic flavor with a texture and taste somewhere between asparagus and artichoke.  I like to roast them with a little olive oil in a 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes.  You can also steam or saute lightly and serve warm with butter and lemon juice or chilled as an appetizer. They aren’t around for very long…try them if you can find them!  I’ve only found them at Tacoma Boy’s, located at the checkout stand.
