Carrot Top Pesto

Carrot Top Pesto

We never get tired of pesto pasta! This Carrot Top Pesto is a great way to use up any leaves from carrots you may have lying around.

Serves 6 people 5 minutes preparation time 10 minutes cooking time

Ingredients

2 cloves garlic, minced

Leaves from one bunch carrots, chopped and washed

1/2 cup walnuts

Large handful basil

Zest and juice half a lemon

2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast (or use 4 tbsp Parmesan)

Olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

 

Method

1) Add ingredients into a high-powered blender and blitz until smooth (or desired texture), adding olive oil as needed - we used around 3 tbsp. Season to taste.

2) Store in airtight containers in the fridge and stir through cooked pasta of choice.
