Garlic scape pesto

Garlic scape pesto:

Approximately 1 cup garlic scapes (a large handful)

¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds, nuts, or sunflower seeds

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup shredded parmesan cheeseJuice of one lemon (plus a little zest if you want)

Small handful of chives, parsley, or basil, whichever you prefer 

Combine all ingredients in bowl of food processor except olive oil. Pulse until well combined, then pour in olive oil slowly with the food processor running. Season with salt and pepper. Pesto is delicious on top of freshly steamed or roasted veggies, grilled or roasted meat, slathered on toast, or used on pizza instead of a red sauce! It also freezes well. We like to spread it thin on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or non-stick spray. Once it’s evenly spread, freeze until solid then break into pieces and freeze in a ziplock bag or freezer appropriate container! It’s even simpler than ice cube trays, and you won’t have to scrub your trays out or worry about pesto flavored ice cubes.
