Grilled Green Garlic

These can be chopped and added to tacos or green salads, folded into mashed potatoes or used as toppings for pizza.


  • 6 green garlic bulbs
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Trim the top inch or so of the green garlic bulbs and remove the outermost layer and discard. Place the trimmed green garlic in a baking dish and drizzle with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, turning several times to coat the garlic.

Preheat a gas grill or prepare a wood or charcoal fire. Rub the grill grate with olive oil. When the fire is very hot, place the garlic crosswise over the grate and cook until lightly charred—30 seconds to 1 minute. Then turn over and cook for another 30 seconds. Remove from the fire and chop, slice or use otherwise as you desire.
