Radish Top Pesto

Radishes are part of the cabbage family, and are closely related to arugula. Look at the leaves, don’t they remind you of arugula greens? The best way to store a bunch of radishes is to cut off the leaves and store them separately. You can add the tops to spice up your salads, or my favorite, make a spicy pesto!

What you need:

  • One bunch of radishes, tops only
  • Oil – Olive or Sunflower
  • 2 – 4 tbs creamy cheese like ricotta, chevre or cream cheese
  • Herb seasoning, like Garden Citrus Blend
  • Optional, diced garlic
  • Salt & Pepper

In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Pulse until smooth. Add oil until you are satisfied with the consistency. Season to taste. Voila…instant pesto!

Store in an airtight container or add a couple of spoonfuls to this awesome Mashed Potatoes recipe and take it to a whole new level!
