Potato Garlic Scape Soup

Now that fresh garlic scapes from Kubecka Farms in Kirkville are in season, this fresh and flavorful soup is the perfect way to begin incorporating them into your meals!


  • - 2 tbsp olive oil
  • - 1.5 cups garlic scapes - roughly sliced; about 3 bunches or 20 scapes
  • - 1 sweet onion - diced
  • - 4 cups white potatoes - diced; about 8-10 mini potatoes or 1-2 russet potatoes
  • - 1/4 tsp salt
  • - 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • - 4 cups vegetable stock
  • - 1/4 cup sour cream - or plain Greek yogurt
  • - Fresh herbs - for serving; dill or chives taste great


1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the sliced garlic scapes and diced onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until the onion is tender.

2. Add the diced potatoes, salt, pepper, and vegetable stock. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Cover and turn down heat to a low boil/simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.

3. Turn off heat and use an immersion blender to blend the soup. If you do not have an immersion blender, transfer the soup in batches (very carefully) to a regular blender and blend until smooth.

4. Stir in the sour cream or yogurt and mix until melted. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a generous portion of fresh herbs, such as dill or chives. Enjoy warm!

Full disclosure, I altered the recipe a little. I used chicken broth instead (I prefer that flavor with potato soups) and didn't add any dairy at the end. My end result was a little thick but was absolutely delicious. I soaked my potatoes for a few hours after cubing and if I were to make this again I would boil them in water for 15 minutes before adding to the onions and scapes. I had to boil my soup for 30 minutes to get the potatoes softened enough and a good portion of my broth had boiled off. That would likely make the consistency better when not adding the extra dairy step. I made this for 1 person and had a bowl for dinner tonight, 3 lunch servings for this week and half went into the freezer.
