  • 1 bunch garlic scapes
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 bunch sorrel
  • 1/4 cup walnuts

Pesto is a versatile sauce that can be used in many different ways. Make a batch and store in the refrigerator for a week.

  • Stir a few spoonfuls of Kale &  Garlic Scape Pesto into a bowl of hot pasta (with some reserved pasta water) or cold pasta salad. I love adding fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese and sometimes leftover grilled chicken!
  • Thin out some of this pesto with more olive oil and drizzle over a fresh tomato mozzarella cheese platter.
  • Spread some of this pesto on a sandwich on its own or mixed with mayo.
  • Stir some of this pesto into your favourite hummus.
  • Serve this pesto on top of  grilled chicken or fish.
