Did You Know?
Green garlic has the same nutritional benefits as regular garlic.
Garlic is known to boost the immune system, stimulate circulation, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases due to its powerful antioxidant called allicin.
Green garlic looks very much like scallions or spring onions, long and slender with tender green tops, and the white parts can be tinged with pink or purple.
The plant should smell like garlic, not onions.
You can enjoy green garlic fresh on top of your salad, sandwiches, omelettes or frittatas, added to soups, used in home-made salad dressings, and grilled or sautéed with your favourite veggies.
Green garlic can be used in the place of typical garlic, onions, leeks, scallions, or shallots in any recipe.
