Anti-food waste carrot top pesto

Just like beetroot and cauliflower leaves, carrot tops are great to whip up and eat as a versatile and tasty sauce. Try this recipe with pasta, drizzled over roasted veg - or simply dip with crudites. A great fuss-free way to reduce your food waste at home.

If you’re out of carrot tops, you can swap for basil leaves instead to use them up before they wilt.
