When we imagine garlic, we probably just imagine the bulb. But wait—there’s more to it! The cloves we use to add pungent flavor to our dishes are just part of an entire plant (some species even bear flowers). We invite you to taste more! In this recipe, we’ve included garlic scapes, the long, thin, green, stalks of the vegetable, which are full of garlicky flavor, but without the sharpness of raw cloves. They provide a delicate, savory touch to this delicious bowl of gourmet ramen.
