Why wait for the summer season’s fresh garlic crop to enjoy that satisfying garlic tang? Before the bulbs form, the tender, mild green leaves can be added like green onions to salads and other dishes. Try this fresh green garlic pesto as a delicious topping for bread, pizza, pasta, baked potatoes, fish, or chicken.
About 1 1/2 cups green garlic, white part and tops
About 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt to taste
Puree all ingredients until smooth in a blender or food proessor, adding enough olive oil to create a good spreading consistency.
Optional: Add a handful of pine nuts or other nuts, basil or other herbs, parmesan or other cheese, hot sauce, or whatever pleases you. Enjoy!
