Garlic Scape Pesto

Rated as 4.42 out of 5 Stars

"Garlic scapes, the curled flower from the top of a garlic plant, are abundant at farmers markets and CSAs (community supported agriculture shares) in spring and make an easy, fragrant pesto that can be spread on bread or crackers, put on pasta, used with fish, and as a substitute for garlic, onion, or scallions! Add to sandwiches, pasta, lamb, and fish dishes. Tastes great mixed with mayo."

I have to admit, this recipe wasn't my favorite. I had never used garlic scapes before, and I doubt I will again. Scapes are quite tough and the resulting purée remained slightly chunky, even ...

I agree that it has a different texture than basil pesto. It was good on pasta and I also mixed a little into some chicken salad. It kept covered in the fridge for several days.

Garlic lovers, this is the recipe for you! Follow it exactly as it is written. We have always made the traditional pesto with basil, parsley and pinenuts; we won't be making that anymore. Th...

Incredible pesto--I made several large batches and froze them--they thaw just beautifully. GREAT for having with pasta dishes or just spread on fresh, warm bread in the winter!

It's very good but I would suggest the following: Make half the recipe to start. The sharpness of garlic scapes is not for everyone. Add 1/2 cup walnuts to the full recipe, 1/4 to half recipe. T...

This was very good and a very easy way to use up the garlic scapes from my CSA. I added sunflower seeds b/c I like the pine nuts in my usual basil pesto and wanted something similar in this. I...

This is incredibly easy and so delicious. Great as a dip. Though I can't wait to serve it on grilled pork loin chops. So fresh tasting.
