Reduce Food Waste: Make Pesto from Radish Greens

Radish Green Pesto

Did you know that you can cook with radish greens? Instead of throwing them away, you can use them for all kinds of things. They can be sautéed, added to smoothies or thrown into a salad. But my favorite way to use them is to make pesto.

It’s as easy as radish greens, some almonds or hazelnuts, garlic, olive oil and a little salt, pepper and lemon juice. Put it all in the blender and away you go.

The full recipe is up over on Foodie Underground if you want to try your own version. No point in tossing those radish greens anymore!
