Carrot Top Pesto from Guest Blogger at Rollin’ Local

Rollin’ Local is a food truck concept coming in Fall of 2018. Owners, Michelle & Kristi will be serving locally sourced, responsibly farmed FARM to STREET foods! We welcome them as our guests on today’s blog post and are grateful for this INCREDIBLE pesto!

As supporters of the local farming community we shop farmers markets, endorse local artisans and we support our local CSA, Cypress Family Farm to Kitchen. We feel an intimate connection to our community and want to provide nourishing meals that are nutritious, delicious and locally sourced.

We believe in using the entire vegetable or protein in every possible way so we developed this Carrot Top Pesto. It can be tossed on potatoes, topped on fish or as a marinade for Chicken. Truly, the possibilities are endless!

Pop over to our FB and IG for truck updates, locally sourced inspiration and more.
