Lovage tastes like cardamom and celery had a baby. If you can't find lovage, increase basil to 1 3/4 cups and add 1 1/2 cups celery leaves. Recipe by Chef/Farmer Stacey Givens of The Side Yard Farm & Kitchen, Portland, OR.
Tip: Green garlic, aka spring, new or young garlic, is garlic that hasn't fully matured. Look for bunches with long white or purple bases, intact roots and dark green leaves. Prep like a leek and use to give both a mild garlic and an onion flavor to salads, sauces, soups and pastas.
