Chop the garlic scapes into small pieces and add them to a food processor along with the lemon balm (or blender, if you have one.) Whizz it all up until it’s finely chopped.
Warm the sunflower seeds in a pan to release the oils then, when they start to smell but before they start to brown, add them to the mixer and whizz.
Add oil, as necessary, to bind the contents of the food processor into a paste.
And that’s it! Serve with pasta and cheese, or use it however you like! The only downside of this recipe – unless you have a very diverse food market near you – is that you will probably have to wait until next year to make it again. Oh well.
