I have a question about the ingredient "stems of green garlic" on the recipe "Grilled Lamb Chops with Green Garlic Chimichurri and Mashed Sweet Potatoes" from aargersi.

Yes, the green tops. Chives would work well too -- I'd use a little more of them to compensate for the fact that they're smaller.

by scallion stems do you mean the green tops? Could I use chives??

Green garlic, or young garlic, comes out in the springtime -- this time of year, you could substitute scallion stems.
