doriegreenspan.com

 

10 garlic scapes, finely chopped

1/3 cup slivered almonds (you could toast them lightly, if you'd like)

1/3 to 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan (to taste and texture)

About 1/2 cup olive oil

 

Sea salt

 

Put the scapes, 1/3 cup of the cheese, almonds and half the olive oil in the bowl of a food processor (or use a blender or a mortar and pestle).  Whir to chop and blend all the ingredients and then add the remainder of the oil and, if you want, more cheese.  If you like the texture, stop; if you'd like it a little thinner, add some more oil.  Season with salt.  Makes about 1 cup
