Radish Greens Pesto with Arugula

radishgreenpesto1I love radishes. Love them.

But those radish greens often get discarded. Add in some super peppery arugula from the garden and its a new kind of pesto..


  • 1 cup radish greens
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan, shredded
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 handful pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

You can use a food processor or a big knife to chop up greens, garlic, Parmesan, and pine nuts. Put into a ramekin and pour in the oil. It should cover the greens.

Stir a spoonful into cooked pasta with chicken, sliced radishes, and arugula leaves.

Peppery and peppery and peppery..
