I haven't tried this yet because it's been too hot for soup, and I haven't had enough garlic scapes at any one time to make it! It sounds yummy though. The recipe did not give cooking times, so I'll have to let you know once I make it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the garlic scapes and onion in olive oil over medium heat until soft. Add the thyme at the end.
  2. In food processor puree the vegetables and add chicken stock as needed to make a smooth paste.
  3. In saucepan heat the vegetable mixture and add remaining chicken broth.
  4. Bring to a simmer and add the cream.
  5. Season as needed.

I got extra garlic scapes in my CSA box, so tried this. I sauteed them in a large skillet, then pureed, then added it all in a pot to cook. Instead of cream, I used pureed cauliflower (to make it no dairy). My child that usu. doesn't like soup ate all of his. If you eat a lot of it, it certainly cleans you out the next day! :)

Excellent soup. I added butter to the olive oil 2tbs and followed the recipe to a t. We grow garlic and it is the perfect time as our scapes are just getting picked. I would recommend this soup to anyone. Thank you for the recipe

Wow! I had never used scapes before, but got them in my CSA share, so tried this soup. Super Yummy! I made a couple of changes for what I had on hand: used a vidalia onion, oregano instead of thyme, 1/2 & 1/2 instead of cream, and 4 cups broth as I threw in a handful of pasta to add more substance. I also grated some Parmesan cheese on top to serve. Start to finish this took about 35 minutes including the time for the pasta to cook in step 4 before the cream was added. Thanks for a great recipe!
