“Adapted from a recipe at Pithy and Cleaver. Green garlic is the young shoots of garlic; it looks like a thick scallion, but smells strongly of garlic. It is an early harbinger of Spring. Because you are using a lot of it, try to get a feta which isn't too salty; the author recommends a French cheese.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop the green garlic in 1/4" pieces. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add green garlic and saute until limp, about 3 minutes.
  2. Slice the feta into thin, even slices. When the green garlic is done, transfer to a bowl. Place one pita in the skillet. Sprinkle with half the green garlic, then cover the whole surface with feta. Sprinkle with the remaining green garlic and black pepper, then top with the second pita. Cover and cook on low for 5 minutes. Carefully flip with two spatulas and cook, uncovered, another 5 minutes until golden brown on both sides and cheese is melted. Cut in 4-6 pieces to serve.
