Carrot Top Pesto

  • 1 bunch carrot tops

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 lemon, zest and juice (zest first - it's easier than trying to zest after squeezing it!)

  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup olive oil

  • (optional) salt to taste

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor, starting with the lesser amount of olive oil. Pulse a few times until well combined. Add additional olive oil as needed to reach desired pesto texture.

  2. Taste pesto - if desired, add salt. I usually season the foods I'm adding it to first (like baked chicken or potatoes) but feel free to add a little salt to the pesto if needed.

  3. Serve pesto over pasta, baked chicken, potatoes, or whatever your heart desires!
