Garlic Scape Pesto

Garlic scapes weren’t a part of my vocabulary until I started receiving the CSA. We’ve been getting a bunch each week, and while cutting them up and adding them to pasta, meat and salads is great, it gets boring. I decided to expand their use and make a basil garlic scape pesto.

Here’s what you’ll need –

  • 3 – 4 garlic scapes, chopped roughly
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano cheese

In a food processor, blend the garlic scapes and basil together. Slowly add the olive oil in a thin stream while the processor is on. Add cheese. Serve on top of pasta, on rice, on a sandwich… the opportunities are endless.
