Carrot Tops Make A Surprisingly Good Pesto

Video: Welcome back to Eating Trash With Claire, the Lifehacker series where I convince you to transform your kitchen scraps into something edible and delicious. In this episode, I show you how to make a delicious, hearty pesto out of carrot tops.

Carrot tops give the pesto a slightly bitter, but completely addicting quality that’s perfect on top of grilled meat, tossed with pasta, or just spread on a cracker. If you don’t have carrot tops, this recipe can be used with almost any green stalk or stem, from beetroot greens to strawberry tops.
