I’ve been introduced to lots of new foods ever since I joined a local farm share. Garlic scapes are one of the many things I didn’t know existed before joining a CSA. These stalks of the garlic plant look a bit like giant scallions, but they taste like mild garlic.

This unique pesto is a great way to use garlic scapes. I mellow them out a bit by mixing them with artichoke hearts and walnuts. The flavor is perfect for garlic fans, and it’s a delicious, healthy dip recipe for chips, pita bread, or veggies. Try this artichoke garlic scape pesto during the brief season when garlic scapes are available.

  1. I get garlic scapes from my CSA farm and am never sure how to use them. I’m pinning this recipe for when I recieve my next garlic scapes! Thanks

  2. I seem to be the only CSA member without any garlic scapes 🙁 Hoping I have some coming to me in the near future so I can give this recipe a try. Sounds delicious! Thanks for linking up 🙂

    1. Thanks! I just made another batch today because I came home from my farm share pick-up with another bundle of garlic scape and it’s way too big to fit in the fridge. It’s very yummy with tortilla chips or carrot sticks.

  3. I pay for my CSA but it’s worth every penny. It would be nice to live next to a generous farmer!

  4. I’ve never heard of scape but this sounds great. Lucky you have a farmer to send you these things 🙂

      1. I’m assuming you have to pay for the produce right, or are you just lucky to live next door to one who generously gives you whatever he grows 🙂

    1. I hadn’t heard of it either until I got it in my farm share last year. I love using a part of the plant that would otherwise go to waste.
