Garlic Scape and Almond Pesto

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Courtesy of:  Dorie Greenspan

10 garlic scapes, finely chopped
1/3 to 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
1/3 cup slivered almonds (toast them for a deeper flavor)
About 1/2 cup olive oil
Sea salt

Put the scapes, almonds, 1/3 cup of the cheese and half the olive oil in the bowl or a food processor (or blender, or use a mortar and pestle).  Whir to chop and blend all the ingredients and then add the remainder of the oil and, if you want, more cheese.  If you like the texture, stop; if you'd like it a little thinner, add some more oil.  Season with salt.

If you're not going to use the pesto immediately, press a piece of plastic against the surface to keep it from oxidizing.  The pesto can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple of days or packed airtight and frozen for a couple of months.

Yields1 cup.
