Carrot Top Pesto
This is an easy carrot top pesto recipe that helps you reduce waste and save money!
You can experiment with different nuts and cheeses depending on what you have in the fridge.
Whilst it doesn’t pack the same powerful flavour as basil, this is a tasty, light and fresh pesto which I love to serve this with pasta, salads, and sandwiches.
