Recipe: Vegan Garlic Scape Pesto


3 garlic scapes, rinsed and chopped a few times to break up

1 ½ cups of my 3-minute parmesan cheeze **

Juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon (approx 2 tbsp)

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

handful of fresh spinach

Directions: Make the 3 minute vegan parmesan cheeze, by toasting 1.5 cups of sesame seeds in the oven until lightly golden in colour and then throw seeds, nutritional yeast, and salt into a blender. Process for 30-60 seconds. Parmesan cheese is complete! Remove cheese from processor and set aside.

Now throw in the garlic scapes and fresh lemon juice and process until fine. Add the vegan parmesan slowly in 1/2 cup increments, alternating with the extra virgin olive oil. Process until smooth or desired consistency.

As a final step take your rinsed spinach and throw in and process. It will turn into a lovely green colour. Serve and enjoy!

** Can also use Parmesan cheese.

Makes 1 ½ - 2 cups.
