Garlic Scape Pesto

  • 2 cups garlic scapes (10-12 scapes), roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese.
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Add garlic scapes and oil the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the cheese, nuts, lemon, salt and pepper and continue blending until smooth and silky. This takes quite a while (3-5 min), as the garlic scapes can be quite hard.

Serve over hot pasta, on fish, or in sandwiches instead of mayonnaise.
