- 1 cup garlic scapes, cut into ½ pieces
- ½ cup basil leaves
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more as needed.
- ½ cup parmesan, cut into ¼ inch chunks
- 1/3 cup pine nuts (or walnuts, or sunflower seeds)
- Lemon juice to taste
- ½ tsp salt
- pepper to taste
Add garlic scapes, basil, and salt to food processor. Pulse a few times until ingredients are mixed and rough in texture. Slowly add the olive oil and continue to pulse until mostly smooth. Add the parmesan, pine nuts, and lemon juice. If the mixture seems too thick, add one additional tablespoon of olive oil at a time and process until your desired consistency is achieved.
Use pesto in pasta or just add to flatbread and top with tomato slices for a slice of pesto pizza.
