This is probably my favourite pesto. Garlic scapes. You can't get any better! Green and garlicy. Yum! Mixed with lemon, walnuts, and olive oil - you don't need cheese to make this taste good! We received 2 batches so far from our CSA, but you only get garlic scapes for limited time, so I actually went to the market and bought more to make pesto to freeze so we can enjoy in the off season. In the recipe, I didn't put the quantities of each ingredient because it really up to your tastes and how many garlic scapes you have. Adjust as needed - the beauty of a food processor. Keep adjusting until you're happy with how it tastes!
Total Time: 10 minutes
Juice of a fresh lemon
Zest of a fresh lemon
What to do:
1) Blend garlic scapes first until smooth-ish. Add walnuts and lemon and a drizzle of oil. Blend and adjust ingredients to fit the taste you like.
2) Serve overtop pasta, crackers, bread, wherever! Freezes well in a container/baggie.
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
