Garlic Scape Pesto

I love seeing garlic scapes in the Farmers Markets because that means it’s time for garlic scape pesto. I ran out of walnuts for the pesto but found that almond butter worked great as a substitute. Spread this pesto on toast with eggs or cheese or use it just like pesto on pasta for a change of pace.

Garlic Scape Pesto:

1 cup chopped garlic scapes, about 6 scapes
1/2 cup almond butter or sunflower seed butter
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup olive oil
pinch of salt

Puree in a food processor until creamy consistency of pesto
