Today’s recipe is a variant of the classic Genoese basil pesto, in fact
instead of basil I used carrots and instead of pine nuts, almonds.

It can be made in the blink of an eye and is perfect for seasoning
pasta and you can use the idea to feed vegetables to children.

What do you think? I have noticed that many people use raw carrots without first blanching them, but I have found that preparing them this way has a more delicate flavor.

I leave you with the recipe for carrot pesto.

See you for the next recipe!
