What does a scape taste like? What the heck do you make with it? These were questions I was willing to discover later.
Garlic Scape Pesto
1 cup garlic scapes, cut into 2 inch pieces
1/4 cup pine nuts (optional, I didn't use any nuts)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1. Take your scapes and nuts if using and pulse in a food processor until things are broken up a bit. Then drizzle in your olive oil slowly while the food processor is running.
2. Pulse in the Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
I made a grilled cheese with scape pesto and mozzarella cheese on proscuitto bread (which was also purchased at the farmer's market 😊).
Bailey wanted in on the action, but unfortunately this is not on his low fat diet.
What else can I make with garlic scapes?! What should I do with the rest of the pesto? Big decisions coming up this week.
