Garlic Scape Pesto
Garlic Scape Pesto is not for the faint of heart! Full of garlic zing, it goes perfectly on pasta or pizza!
Course: Sauce
Servings: 1 1/2 cups Pesto
Author: Cristina
  • ~7 oz. (200g) fresh garlic scapes
  • 12 Tbsp olive oil
  • Dash black pepper and salt
  1. Clean the garlic scapes, removing any dried bits or dirt. Pat dry.
  2. Cut into 2" sections (roughly - you're just cutting it small enough to process easier!)
  3. Add the garlic scapes, olive oil and salt and pepper to a food processor and blend until it turns into a paste, occasionally stopping and carefully scraping the sides. It will take a couple minutes of stopping and scraping for it to become very smooth, though it will remain thick.
Recipe Notes

Recommended for pasta (with shredded parmesan or reggiano cheese on top), pizza, on burgers, thinly spread on bread. A little bit goes a long way!
