Garlic Scape Pesto

by Anne Maxfield on June 20, 2012


  • bunch garlic scapes (about 20-mine loosely fit my food processor work bowl )
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts (toasted)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice of 1/2 lemon


Step 1
In the work bowl of a food processor add the garlic scapes, pine nuts and Parmesan and process until finely chopped. With the processor running, slowly add the olive oil. Keep adding until the pesto is the desired consistency—I like it to be a fairly thick paste. Add the salt, pepper and lemon juice, process until mixed. Taste and check for seasoning.
