A simple and delicious use for your garlic scapes! Mix your pesto in some greek yogurt or sour cream for a great dip, serve it over pasta, on a slice of crusty bread, in a grilled cheese sandwich, whatever tickles your fancy! Pine nuts are great in this, but so are sunflower seeds, almonds, pistachios, and walnuts! Or leave out the nuts entirely! As always, the ingredients are most flexible depending on what you have on-hand.
I wish I could take credit for this one, but it’s adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow’s clean eating recipe collection called “It’s All Good”. Guess what? She’s right! This buttery rich soup is full of flavor and none of the bad stuff. It’s also a great use for all that slow cooker veggie broth we’ve been making from the veggie scraps!
It’s also a very flexible recipe ingredient-wise. No leeks? No problem! No chard? Just about any other leafy green will do! Canned or prepped dried beans work here. Make this one your own and enjoy!
