What’s In Season?

I have been waiting for what seems an eternity for these little green shoots. Covered them lightly with olive oil, sprinkled with kosher salt and pepper, put in the oven at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Can’t get enough.
All I keep hearing about is green garlic this and green garlic that. Thought I’d try it out to see what all the fuss was about. Chopped and sauteéd in a tbsp of sesame oil. Added fresh spinach. Cooked down. Sprinkled with a bit of soy sauce and some toasted sesame seeds. Love…(even if my 3 boys turned their noses to it.)

Need I say more.
