garlic scape pesto

Yields: approx. 2 cups


  • 2 cups roughly chopped garlic scapes, buds removed
  • ½ cup olive oil + more for desired consistency
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, almonds or pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ tsp sea salt (or to taste)
  • ¼ cup fresh basil (optional)


  1. Place all ingredients in food processor or blender and blend well, leaving a wee bit of texture.  Do not blend to complete puree.
  2. Garnish with a few thinly sliced scapes or buds.

Serve with your favourite chips, crackers, or veggies, or as a garnish on soup, in wraps, sandwiches or veggies patties.
