If you’re stuck with leftover carrot tops and don’t know what to make of them, we’ve got your back! As it turns out, carrot tops are a super versatile ingredient that can be used to substitute almost any herb. Not to mention their bitter greens add an incredible freshness and vibrant flavour to any dish, along with a healthy dose of nutritious benefits – from Vitamin C to calcium and potassium.
While there are many recipes that allow you to transform your carrot tops into savoury new creations, our favourite has to be this DIY Carrot Top Pesto recipe from nutritionist Marie-Ève Caplette. It’s bright and clean-tasting, with a subtle hint of carrot. Best of all, it serves as a quick and easy way to use up every part of the carrot so nothing goes to waste. Spread this pesto on crackers, lather it on top of salmon, toss it into roast veggies, stir it into pasta… the possibilities are endless (and delicious!)
