Carrot Top Pesto

This is what happens when your daughter grows up and joins her own CSA - you get new recipes! This recipe comes via the Intervale Community Farm, via Anna. Why didn't I ever come up with this one? I did add a few options for variety.


2 cups carrot tops

1 cup basil leaves (can also replace some basil with more carrot tops or parsley)

1/4 cup olive oil

1/3 cashews or other nuts

garlic and cheese (if desired)

Puree all ingredients together until smooth. Serve over pasta or whole grains, spread on bread or drizzle over steamed veggies.
