Cook Time



  • 6 garlic scapes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 6 cups baby potatoes, washed and cut into quarters


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Toss the potatoes in the grapeseed oil and spread them evenly on the lined baking sheet.
  3. Place this in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, make the garlic scape pesto by placing the garlic scapes in a food processor and pulsing until minced.
  5. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, hemp seeds, and nutritional yeast and pulse this well until everything is mixed.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
