Story Behind this Recipe

Last year I wasn't able to eat garlic shoots, but the other day my friend let me know that a Korean supermarket had it, so she bought some for me. I first made pasta with garlic shoots, but then I had a bit left over. I was thinking about what I could make and arrived to this.
