ZERO WASTE CARROTS

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

PESTO

  • 100g carrot tops
  • 200ml rapeseed oil
  • ½ lemon
  • Salt & pepper

PREPARATION

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Remove the leafy tops from the carrots and leave aside for the carrot pesto.
  • Thoroughly wash the carrots (do not peel), halve lengthwise, mix with salt, pepper and olive oil and add to a baking tray. 
  • Bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • In a food processor blitz the carrot tops, add the lemon juice and oil until you get a pesto consistency. 
  • Season with salt and pepper, before drizzling the pesto over the roasted carrots. 
  • Any remaining carrot top pesto can be covered with olive oil and stored in a glass jar in the fridge or freezer.
