These are a treasure! I find them at farmers' markets in the early summer. This recipe is my favorite preparation, steamed and simple. I serve them as a warm side dish, but I always cook extra so I have leftovers in the refrigerator for cold snacks and salads. They have the texture of green beans with a light and fresh garlic flavor. Alternative preparations include sauted in olive oil or added to soups and stews.
