  • 1/4 cup chopped garlic scapes
  • 2 cups kale
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper


  • Place roughly chopped garlic scape in the food processor, process until finely chopped. I only have a mini food processor and this pesto was easy to make in it.
  • Add roughly chopped kale, in small batches...process until finely chopped.
  • Add parmesan cheese, almonds and salt...process until finely chopped.
  • Add olive oil...this is where personal taste comes into play...if you like a loose pesto, add more oil - if you like a tight pesto, add less oil.
