Carrot Top Pesto
A great way to maximize your produce and savings is to use all parts of the vegetables you receive, like delicious carrot tops.
In a food processor, pulse together the nuts and garlic.
Add the carrot tops, basil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Pulse again, then add ⅛ cup olive oil and pulse until combined. Make it as smooth or as chunky as you like.
Scoop the pesto into a small bowl and stir in ⅛ cup more olive oil.
Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. If desired, stir in a pinch of red pepper flakes or parmesan cheese.
Serve with toasted bread, scoop onto pasta, or dollop into soups.
