Carrot Top Pesto Recipe: Use the carrot green for an irresistible pesto with a unique, tangy taste. Vegan, vegetarian and simple.

Carrot greens are perfectly edible and have a very unique and delicious taste. I would probably describe it as a bit bitter, salty and nutty all at the same time. The carrot greens are just perfect for pesto, and it’s actually my favorite pesto recipe! Have you used carrot greens yet? Let me know in the comments 🙂

You can eat the pesto with pasta as usual, enjoy it as a spread or use it for many other recipes. For example, I really like it with a buckwheat galette.
