Roasted Garlic Spears Print 13 LikeDislike By Cardwell Beach At Seattle’s Pike Place Market you are surrounded by fresh and seasonal produce year round. Summertime is filled with rows of peonies and an abundance of Garlic Spears. These are the flower tops from Elephant garlic and have such a lovely and mild garlic flavor when cooked. The whole stem can be eaten, as is–no waste. These can easily be steamed or sautéed and love serving this dish with lot’s of good fine herbed sea salt and lemon zest. Sure to brighten any meal!
