I've picked up a couple bunches of garlic scapes at one of the farmers markets that I go to and knew I wanted to make pesto with some of them. A few days after I bought the first bunch, Kat at A Good Appetite posted a recipe for garlic scape pesto - how perfect is that! So I made up a batch of it today - yum! This stuff is GOOD!! I brushed some of it on the chicken I grilled for our dinner tonight and then I froze the rest of it in cubes. This will be awesome to have on hand to put on chicken and lamb.
Garlic Scape Pesto
2 c garlic scapes, flower removed & green stems chopped
2/3 c slivered almonds (I used walnuts)
1 1/2 c olive oil
1/2 c grated Parmesan
1 t salt
Put the scapes & nuts into a food processor & pulse until as smooth as you can get it. With the food processor running drizzle in the olive oil (It'll seem like a lot) & process until smooth. Stir or process in the cheese (I processed it in to get it more incorporated.) Stir in salt & pepper. Store in the fridge for one week or freeze.
About 3 cups.
