Cream of Green Garlic Potato Soup

Plays:

In this video, you’ll see how to make potato soup with fresh green garlic. This recipe calls for sautéing the chopped green garlic with prosciutto, pancetta, or bacon, but you’ll also get substitution tips for making it a great vegetarian soup. You’ll see how to develop a potato soup with a luxurious, creamy texture and just the right amount of chunky bits to keep things interesting. The green garlic creates a flavor that’s more mellow than regular garlic—sort of a cross between leeks, caramelized onions, garlic, shallots, and chives. See the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Cream of Green Garlic Potato Soup.

That sure looks like scallions/green onions to me, and I'd never heard of green garlic, either....

Garlic is green at some point in its existence. It's like onions before it gets mature.

Nestlover above got it right. He does NOT mean scallions, green onions, spring onions, or garlic scapes. He means green garlic which is garlic that is harvested before the cloves have begun to mature. I live in a major metro area and cannot find them sadly.
