Fresh garlic is not a common sight, even in Lebanon where so much of the garlic available in stores is imported from China. These came from Ibrahim’s cart (see previous post) and were so fresh, we used the stems to make a delicious hash with eggs. It may not look like much but the taste was so incredible it was inhaled in minutes.
The garlic cloves did not have yet that nasty green root inside. The scapes were not cut off, they were just left on the plant and we used them to make this easy and quick dish.
