Shout it from the rooftop! Don’t miss the opportunity of this early summer gem. Garlic scapes are here and gone in the blink of an eye.
10-12 garlic scapes-washed, cut into 2 inch pieces and bulbs removed
1/4 heaping cup pine nuts-dry toasted
5 basil leaves-washed
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
generous pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
Tip the above prepped ingredients into the food processor and give it a whirl to desired smoothness. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving. If the consistency is too thick for your liking, feel free to thin it out with extra virgin olive oil.
