This super-green pesto combines fresh garlic scapes, mild pistachios and parmesan cheese for a mega-garlicky twist on the more traditional basil pesto. Try it tossed with pasta or anywhere else you want a pop of garlicky goodness.
- 2 cups roughly chopped garlic scapes
- 1/2 cup shelled pistachios
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
Using a food processor, pulse the garlic scapes and pistachios until finely chopped. Add parmesan cheese, and pulse a few more times to combine.
With the processor running on low, slowly drizzle in the olive oil in a thin stream. Process until you’ve added all the oil and you have a smooth paste. (If the pesto is too thick, you can add a little water, a tablespoon at a time, until it reaches a smooth, spreadable consistency.) Season with salt, and serve immediately.
