PESTO CON FOGLIE DI RAVANELLO|RADISH LEAVES PESTO



I bought so many radishes yesterday and had so many leaves that I decided to try to make a pesto with them.

I loved it! I will make a lot of it and freeze my mini pesto. Jace won’t be very happy as he hates pesto😂


I do traditional pesto with a mortar but in this case the leaves were big and not as soft as the basil ones so I used a mixer.

I didn’t weight ingredients so I can’t give a very precise recipe but you can have an idea and adjust it to your taste.


2 SERVINGS:

2 cups of radish leaves

5/6 basil leaves

2 hands full of almonds

3 spoons of Parmigiano (but Pecorino would be better as more savory)

1 very small clove of garlic

salt

extra virgin olive oil (good one and lot of)


I served it with whole-wheat penne.





TIP: (for all pestos) while you cook the pasta, take a couple of spoons of its water and mix it in a bowl with your pesto, it will help the creaminess.


Buon appetito!
