Carrot top pesto

Jump to recipe

Ages ago I found the best pesto recipe that I have ever used. (of course i modified it from the original, usually left out the mint, and use parmesan cheese instead etc..)I loved it for it’s taste, it’s spice, and it’s affordable price!


This year in the garden we grew carrots, lots of carrots. It’s amazing how much greenery comes with a single carrot. In the sprit of waste not want not, i decided to see what we could do with these…  I found plenty of recipes for pesto but decided to go with our old stand by and switch out carrot tops for cilantro and basil for mint!


Verdict: It’s an amazing option, and it’s “free”.

If you try it, let me know what you think!
