Truth is, I hate thinning vegetable seedlings so I use them in the kitchen as much as possible and throw what’s left on the compost heap.
This carrot top pesto recipe is an amazing way to use up those carrot tops and I even use the entire plant when the carrots are too small to use seperately.
This carrot top pesto recipe is so easy that you can make it in as little as 10 minutes. We love it added to pasta, spread on pizza bases and with cheese on toasties.
For this recipe you’ll want to select carrot tops that are young and fresh. You can discard the thicket stems but if using thinnings then use the entire plant.
Stir your carrot top pesto recipe into pasta, spread on pitta bread, dip in crisps or add a dollop to your pizza.
