Garlic Scape Pesto
Recipe from: Indra McMorran, Armstrong, BC
This recipe is a great way to use garlic scapes, you can also add other herbs in to your preference as well. Dill, parsley, and cilantro are all great additions for adding some extra flavours. Pesto is great on pasta, for sandwich spreads, dips and sauces for stir fry's with a splash of coconut milk and many other tasty dishes.
Approximately 10 garlic scapes
1/4 cup raw pine nuts
1/4 cup lightly packed basil leaves
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup lightly packed grated parmesan cheese
juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp each salt and fresh ground pepper
Place your garlic scapes and basil leaves in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until you get the pesto finely chopped. Scrape down the sides and then run continuously until you reach your desired consistency.
Makes approximately enough for two bowls of pasta, it also freezes well and is great frozen in ice cube trays to pull out of the freezer for a easy dinner over the winter.
