Garlic Scape Soup

Scapes are here!
Not sure what to do with garlic scapes (available only at this early part if the season)?  Many recipes can be found on the web … here’s a favorite and easy one that a vendor/customer shares with you:
Garlic Scape Soup
3 C chopped garlic scapes (1-inch pieces)
1 Medium Onion, chopped (or you can replace this with extra scapes)
10 chopped white or other mushrooms (optional)
1 T olive oil
1 t thyme leaves or 1/2 t dried thyme
3 C broth (veggie, leek, or chicken stock)
1 C milk, soy milk, or light cream (also good with none)
salt and pepper
Saute chopped scapes and onion in olive oil until almost soft. 
Then add thyme and mushrooms and saute for a few more minutes until all vegetables are soft. 
Puree in a blender or food processor, adding stock as needed to make a smooth paste. 
Add remaining stock, bring soup to a simmer and then add milk if desired. 
Salt and pepper to taste.
