Don’t toss those carrot tops! They are totally edible and worth the effort to make carrot top pesto.

Roasted Carrots with Carrot Top Pesto
Ingredients
FOR THE CARROTS:
  • 1 bunch of carrots cleaned with tops removed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • flaky sea salt to taste
  • crumbled goat cheese optional
FOR THE PESTO:
  • carrot tops from one bunch of carrots approximately 2-3 lightly packed cups
  • 1 medium clove garlic chopped
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts chopped walnuts may be substituted
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • flaky sea salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place carrots in a bowl- drizzle carrots with olive oil, balsamic vinegar & honey, tossing to coat
  4. Spread carrots on parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle carrots with sea salt
  5. Roast carrots for 20-25 minutes (depending on size) stirring occasionally until evenly browned & tender.
  6. *Often times, carrots from the farmers market are not uniform in size. If some carrots are larger than others, slice them in half lengthwise as needed to make them similar in thickness, so they all cook evenly.
  7. While the carrots are roasting, make the pesto.
  8. Remove the carrot top leaves from the stems.
  9. Add carrot leaves, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan, a couple pinches of sea salt, and olive oil to the bowl of a food processor.
  10. Pulse contents, occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl, until smooth- taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  11. When carrots are done roasting, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  12. Place carrots on a serving dish, top with spoonfuls of pesto and then add crumbled goat cheese.
