Garlic Scape Pesto
Number of Servings: 3 cups
¼ lb garlic scapes (about a 1 cup liquid measuring cup full of roughly chopped scapes)
½ cup olive oil
1 cup grated parmesan
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
Salt to taste
Leave out the parmesan if you would like to freeze pesto for later use. Add parmesan when ready to use.
Serve with pasta, gnocchi, or as a spread for a grilled cheese or chicken sandwich.
Experiment with adding walnuts, kale or spinach to the recipe to make your own unique garlic pesto.
