I have a question about the recipe "Green Garlic, Brown Butter and Lime Pasta" from Rinku Bhattacharya. What is green garlic??
Green garlic is garlic harvested before it separates into cloves. It looks like a green or spring onion, but it isn't. It has a mild garlic flavor. You could use finely chopped leeks and a little garlic...or, wait until next spring and head to the farmer's market for the real thing.
Green garlic is immature garlic. It looks like a robust scallion. It's available in the springtime. If you are in the northern hemisphere in November, you'll want to substitute with other garlic and/or onions.
