Have you ever considered the scape? The scape is the flower stalk of members of the allium family and for culinary purposes this includes onions, leeks, chives and garlic.
I had never considered using the scape of these plants until a visiting gardener recommended that I put my garlic plants on double duty. She suggested a pesto recipe using the garlic scape instead of a leafy herb.
Typically we remove the scape so all the bulb’s energy is spent on bulb development and not bloom; so using the scape in the process makes particular sense.
The best time to harvest your scapes is just as the flower heads begin to form.
