This is a link to an article in this Sunday's NY Times Magazine section in which there are 3 recipes for green garlic provided by the Chef from a San Francisco Top 100 restaurant..
We made the simplest recipe of the 3: the parsley green garlic vinagrette- had some one night over asparagus and the next night as a salad dressing- it is delicious and a good use for some of the green garlic. It was even better the next day.

Regarding Leeks:

Jan found a Julia Childs Leek Quiche recipe. We had enough leeks for 2/3 of the recipe- it calls for a lb. and we had almost 11 oz. She made the recipe in custard cups, and baked them in a water bath, without a crust, and the result was a rich and very tasty, flavorful custard. She also skipped the last step- dotting the custard with butter before baking.
