Garlic whips adds texture and flavor to scrambled eggs

 
Garlic whips are a perfect companion for scrambled eggs. They can also be used in stir-fry and pasta dishes that you would normally use asparagus for.

 

Garlic and asparagus are two of my favorite foods. To me, garlic whips combine the best of both: a wonderful mild garlic flavor with the green herbaceous flavor and crunchy texture of asparagus.

When the weather turns nice in the spring, start looking for garlic whips to make an appearance at farmers markets and local food stores. Roth’s Fresh Markets usually carries them and you can usually find someone at the Salem Saturday Market with them.

One of the easiest and tastiest ways of enjoying them is sautéed in some butter and used in scrambled eggs. You can also use them in place of asparagus in stir-fry and pasta dishes.
