New Pesto to Try

 

Boy, what a fun day I had the other day when I came home with my market radishes. I recently roasted them and served them with a sesame salt and a serrano foam. This time, I wanted to do something with the radish tops. I love making pesto with all sorts of greens and this time, the radish tops were no different. 

Here is what I started with:

(Top to bottom) 

Chop off the tops from the radish. Separate the tops from the radish (use a bowl). Cut off the core from the brussel sprouts and add them all into a bowl (rinse both with clean cold water to remove all the grit).

Once the veggies were rinsed and drained, I added them to a scorching hot skillet with a bit of oil to roast on high. Once they were finished (about 10-15 mins; I like 'em chard and black) I tossed with the radish top pesto. Seriously.... Go run! and make this.

It became a staple all week for veggies, wet rubs, and also a sandwich spread. whoah! go and make it.
