Another seasonal favorite are the beautiful garlic scapes that start coming in this time of year. Garlic scapes are the green shoots that grow off the tops of garlic and have a garlicy, chive like flavor. While you can chop them up and throw them on top of a salad, this simple garlic chive pesto is an excellent introduction to their beautiful taste.
1 cup chopped garlic scapes
1/3 cup EVOO
handful nuts of choice (cashews or pine nuts go well)
1/3 cup Parmesan
1 tsp salt
A couple tabelspoons of water, on hand
Combine all ingredients except water in food processor. Add water 1 tbsp at a time to desired consistency.
