Everyone should use garlic scapes in their pesto! Combined with the avocado oil this pesto is a total winner. I used it on steaks, burgers, pizzas, and in pasta (all from just one recipe!). I even brought it camping and used it on our vegetable packets we cooked over the fire! Everyone at the campout was raving. I was the camping hero!

Garlic scapes taste just like garlic, and were perfect in this pesto! The added pine nuts, basil, and lemon gave this delicious pesto a true to taste flavor and texture. It's especially delicious on flatbread, which is how we served it. I can't wait to make it again soon.
