Radish Greens Pesto
  • 2 cup Radish Greens washed well
  • 1/4 cup nuts or seeds (pine nuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, almonds are all good choices)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesean cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Add the greens, garlic, and nuts/seeds to the bowl of the food processor. Process on high for about 15 seconds, open lid and scrape down the sizes, and then blend for another 15 seconds. Repeat until the greens and nuts/seeds are finely chopped.

  2. Secure the lid of the food processor, and with the blade running, slowly pour in the olive oil. Scrape down the sides of the bowl again.

  3. Add the parmesean and lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste, and then continue to blend about 20 seconds more. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Recipe Notes
  1. Note that this recipe is for roughly one bunch of radish greens if you were to buy a bunch from the grocery store or farmer's market. I know the amount can vary depending on the source, but its ok if the amounts are not exact. The idea is that if you have one bunch of greens, you can make one batch of this pesto!
