Radish Green Pesto

Fewer things make me happier than not wasting food, especially foods as nutritious as radish greens! Full of vitamin C, B6, and A, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, calcium, potassium, and folic acid, WOWZA! GIMME! Let the items you have at hand dictate what you make, not the other way around and you'll end up with a lot more than you thought.



Radish Greens Pesto


Tips - carrot or turnip greens work really well too! Parmesan cheese can be used in place of miso, but if you don't have either it will still be wonderful.


Ingredients


Radish greens, 4 cups loosely packed

Cilantro, a handful, stems & all

Green onions, a handful, white & green part

Pepitas, toasted hard, start w/ half a cup

Miso, 1tbsp, optional

Lemon, juice to taste

Lemon zest, 1 unit

Olive oil, to taste, go slow you don't need much

Garlic, to taste

Salt, to taste

Instructions


Blend in a food processor until smooth but still chunky. If you use a blender it will still work but the end result will be more sauce-like, you can also chop everything by hand but it will labor intensive but it works!
