So in my CSA a few weeks ago I got these garlic scapes. Garlic scapes are are the parts of the garlic that grow from the bulb. I wasn't sure what to do with them so I looked up a recipe and decided to make garlic scape pesto.
1 Cup Chopped Garlic Scapes
1/3 Cup of walnuts
Juice of 1 Lemon
1/2 Cup Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese grated
1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Coarse Salt and Pepper to taste
Blend everything but the olive oil, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Slowly drizzle in the oil with the motor running, and blend until emulsified and smooth. Add a little more oil if you like yours a little looser, but I found that this amount to be just right for me. Salt and Pepper to taste.
Use this as you would use any pesto. We had it with some pasta and it was perfect. It also makes a great dip with some crusty bread. Happy eatting!
