Chard with Caramelized Onions and Garlic Scapes

Scapes, the immature flowering stalks of plants like garlic, are my favorite “adventurous” vegetable.  One day when I wasn’t paying quite enough attention to my stir-fry, I discovered something wonderful – caramelized garlic scapes!

This version is easy enough to be part of any Mediterranean- style spread, since the herb-based stuffing comes together in minutes and requires no cooking. A variety of other grains (barley, farro, wheat berries) also […]
