PSA: Stop throwing away carrot tops! Hear Wen-Jay discuss why here.

There are tons of delicious ways you can utilize the tops of your carrots.

1. Blend with oil to make a pesto or chimichurri sauce.

2. Put them in a pot of water with the carrots themselves and onions to make a homemade veggie stock.

3. Add to salads or stir frys for maximum carrot flavor.

4. Simply sauté them on their own with garlic and oil for a tasty side dish.
