Roasted Carrots with Carrot Top Pesto
Did you know carrot tops are edible? In fact they can add a lot of flavor and nutrition to your table! If carrots with tops still attached are unavailable, parsley can be substituted. This dish has a beautiful presentation already, but to enhance it, you can leave a half an inch of the carrot top on each carrot before roasting. If your carrots are uneven in size, you can leave some whole or cut them in half or quarters lengthwise to keep them all roughly the same diameter for even cooking.
