Fresh for the Pesto Garden: Green Garlic Pesto

article image

Makes about 1 cup

If you don’t have garlic growing in your garden now, scallions and garlic cloves will stand in for the greens. Pecorino is an Italian sheep’s-milk cheese. For best results when freezing, omit the cheese and add it later when the pesto is ready to be used.

· 2 cups garlic greens, chopped (about 24 stalks)
· 2 tablespoons fresh herb leaves (try marjoram or summer savory)
· 1/3 cup pecans
· 3/4 cup freshly grated pecorino cheese
· 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
· Salt, to taste
· Freshly ground pepper, to taste

1. Combine the first four ingredients in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. With the machine running, slowly add the olive oil to create a fine paste.

2. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
