We are currently harvesting delights such as lettuce, garlic scapes and this will be our first week with peas. I have to say that fresh peas are one of my favorite parts of summer.
And what could be better on a hot summers night then some fresh garlic scape pesto? Well I'm pretty sure that it is a perfect choice for a hot night. Thanks to Liz S for sharing her recipe.
- 6 garlic scapes, chopped
- 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup pecans
- 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place the garlic scapes, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and pecans in the bowl of a food processor. Drizzle the olive oil over the mixture. Blend until the pesto is a brilliant green color and smooth in texture. Season with salt and pepper.
