I am harvesting carrots from my garden today to use in a barley bean soup. I know that carrot tops are edible and wanted some insights into other ways that I can prepare them.


Carrot tops instead of basil in a pesto.

My next idea was to make pesto, trading out the basil for carrot tops, which proved an amazing alternative.

Any other carrot top pesto or carrot top ideas and recipes?

I'm sure carrot tops would make a great pesto. My fiance made some not too long ago out of radish tops, and it was one of the best things I have ever tasted, hands down.

I like the smell of carrot greens and I have been known to chew on a stalk occasionally while dicing veggies. This is such a good idea - I never know what to make with carrot tops and I feel guilty throwing them away (even if it's to the compost!) This is great and I never thought of serving pesto with hard-boiled eggs, another great idea.

I have tasted them, they are edible for sure, but I don't think I would use them for pesto.

They are a great addition to my homemade vegetable stock!

There is nothing like the smell of vegetable stock that fills the air while it is cooking.
