Carrot Top Pesto
HUGE carrot top. Or 3-4 normal size carrot tops.
Small handful basil and/or parsley
Small handful nuts
(I used cashew.. but you could use pinenuts, almonds or walnuts)
( this gives a creamy, parmesan flavour.. I prefer it to parm in the way it creates pesto! Vegan win!!)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil- 3 -4 Tbs.. or more depending on taste
Pop the nuts and all ingredients except the herbs and oil into a food processor & pulse until the nuts are pulverised.
Add the herbs
Pulse until the herbs are pesto-like.. you can still see the herb flecks, and with a little chunk of nuts.
Taste & add salt if needed.
This keeps for a week or 2 in the fridge. Add a layer of olive oil to cover the top of the pesto, this is a natural preservative..keeps bacteria out & the pesto fresh!
