Freezing Raw Vegan Food

I am in the process of learning more about freezing raw vegan foods. Fruits, nuts and seeds I have been freezing and would like to expand on it. 
Kristen's Raw has a great article on her blog about freezing raw foods. Also read the comments after the article, it adds to the post. As always, great information from Kristen.

Garlic scapes, arugula pesto

Found this great recipe for garlic scape and arugula pesto from The Romantic Life.

bunch of arugula
4 garlic scapes
1/2 cup almonds (I soaked and rinsed it)
olive oil

In food processor blend almonds and scapes.
Add a little olive oil and salt.
Add some of the arugula,
stop the FP and with spatula push the pesto back down into the bowl from the sides.
Add the rest of the arugula and some more olive oil.
Process and taste to see if it needs more salt and olive oil. You don't want it too dry.

Can serve this in many ways. I will have it on romaine leaves. Has great garlic flavor.
