Vegan Garlic Scape Pesto

We received some beautiful garlic scapes in this week's CSA basket. They are really delicious and have a very sweet and garlicky flavour to them. I decided to make some pesto with them.

Garlic Scape Pesto
6 - 7 garlic scape stalks, roughly chopped
2/3 cup toasted sunflower seeds (or use pepitas)
2 tsp lemon juice
10 basil leaves
2 sprigs of marjoram
2/3 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Put everything into a blender and blend until smooth. Use on pasta, as a dip or sandwich spread or any other place you would use pesto.
