I usually just chop them up and throw them into my salad, which is delicious. But since I bought so many, I have been trying to find other ways to use them. I chopped them up and threw them in with some green lentils along with some vegetable broth. It was a nice surprise when I got a burst of spice in a bite of lentils. I have also been sauteing them in a bit of olive oil with spinach. All are a good way to use garlic scapes, however, I offer up this recipe for the real garlic lovers. Next time you are at the market, grab a handful and make this pesto. I do recommend eating this alone or when you don't have to go out because you will reek of garlic!!
Garlic Scape Pesto
8-10 garlic scapes
handful of pistachios
juice of 1/2 lemon plus zest
1/4 c parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil (I eyeball it until it makes a paste)
Put all ingredients in a food processor until it makes a thin paste. I topped some zoodles with this pesto along with some sundried tomatoes to make a delicious dinner. You could also use pasta or chicken and it would be delicious!
