Carrot Top Pesto

Ingredients

1 c. carrot tops*, chopped

6 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil

1 lg. garlic clove or garlic scape, chopped fine 1⁄4 tsp. sea salt

3 Tbs. walnuts, toasted

1⁄4 c. Parmesan or Parmesan/Romano cheese

Mix all ingredients. Serve as pasta pesto, or on slices of fresh bread, with cracked black pepper.

*This can be made early in the season by snipping the carrots off the greens after thinning carrots in the garden and chopping, and using garlic scapes instead of garlic cloves.
