Pesto! Crazy, right?
Joe suggested to me that I make pesto using the carrot greens from this week’s share. I did and it’s yummy! I didn’t have pine nuts and used what I had in the pantry which was soy nuts, they worked great.
In my food processor I added lots of garlic (about 2 full heads), a bag of soy nuts, salt, pepper, and olive until it tasted right, and all the carrot green I had. That’s it!
