When I eat apples, I like to eat the whole thing. Core, seeds, and all. Same goes for watermelon, no seed spitting for me, I even love the rind! Pretty much if I find out its edible, I’ll eat the whole thing (much to my girlfriends initial horror I think . That said, I’m not always sure what’s edible! I was recently excited to discover (thanks, Google…) that the long and lovely greens that you’ll see on the top of carrots at your Farmers Market are delicious (or “nomalicious” as I like to say) for eating. I’ve had them in salads and sautes which are equally yummy, but today I would like to present to you…
Carrot Greens Pesto.
1 bunch carrot greens
1 ripe avocado
1 clove garlic
salt and pepper to taste
a bit of water for blending.
Blend until creamy in food processor.
Eat with carrots.
I’ve been playing around with some of my CCK recipes (40-ish down! Heaps to go!) and turned the Breakfast Peach Bake into a tasty, almost raw dessert. I replaced the cereal with raw soaked buckwheat and just mixed everything else right in.
Does anyone else like to raw-ify, veganize, or otherwise modify tasty looking recipes? I find myself doing it quite a bit with generally good results. While I’m asking questions, please tell me somebody out there likes to eat entire pieces of fruit, leaving nothing for the compost pile. Any other adventurous fruit eaters?
Two weeks down in the Vegan Mofo, I’m immensely enjoying all the other bloggers out there and will be posting a list shortly of all my favorites.
Happy Saturday, I’m off the the Farmers Market!
