Garlic scapes came in our Abbondanza farm share for the past two weeks. They are good in a stir fry, but I think pesto is my favorite way to eat them. I threw some spinach into this pesto, but that's totally optional. The spinach calms the bite of the garlic a little bit though not too much. If you're lucky enough to have basil, you can of course use that too. As I've mentioned before, I find that pesto is usually creamy enough without pine nuts or walnuts or parmesan but you're the boss. Now DO IT!
2 handfuls of garlic scapes, chopped into 1-2 inch segments (around half a pound)
2 handfuls of spinach (optional)
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 t. salt
Blend everything! Yum!
