Radish Top Pesto with Radishes

Radish Top Pesto with Radishes

1 bunch radishes, tops removed and well washed, bottoms (radishes!) quartered
Handful of mint
Handful of arugula
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 cloves garlic
Extra virgin olive oil
Finishing salt

In a food processor combine radish tops, mint, arugula, lemon zest and juice, garlic and a good pinch of salt. Don’t worry too much about measurements here – there is no right or wrong!

Pulse until smooth in a food processor and stream in olive oil until desired consistency of pesto.

Lay a big spoonful of pesto on a plate (there may be left over!) and arrange quartered radishes on top. Season with finishing salt and drizzle of olive oil. Serve as a side or riff on classic crudité.
