One of our awesome Lake Barcroft CSA members sent me a few wonderful recipes that she has perfected using our veggies. I love hearing from you guys how you are transforming our ingredients into nourishing, healthy food! 

Carrot Top/Greens Pesto


2 cups carrot tops and stems, chopped (from about 8 medium carrots)

⅓ cup pine nuts

2 garlic cloves

½ cup quality extra virgin olive oil

½ cup parmesan cheese

⅛ teaspoon quality sea salt

⅛ teaspoon black pepper

Add all ingredients into a food processor and pulse in short bursts until the ingredients are chopped and mixed. Store in fridge.  Can also freeze


Basil Pesto


4 cups fresh basil leaves (from about 3 large bunches)

½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

⅓ cup pine nuts

2 garlic cloves

½ cup freshly grated Parmesan

1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

1 pinch of pepper

Preparation: Combine basil, oil, pine nuts, and garlic in a blender. Blend until paste forms, stopping often to push down basil. Add both cheeses and salt; blend until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl.


All credit goes to Eve F for these amazing recipes!
