Radish Leaves Pesto

Hey out there,

this year I got lots of very thoughtful presents for my birthday. One of it was the cookbook that Steffi recommended to you a couple of weeks ago. I got it from her and my lovely colleagues at work :)
As you know, the basic idea of the (unfortunately only in German available) cookbook is, to use everything from veggies and fruits and not throw away so much of its valuable parts.

The first recipe I tried is super simple and a genius idea at the same time: radish leaves pesto!

I always used to throw away the radish leafes, because I had no idea that you can actually eat them. In the original recipe there were also parsley leaves in the ingredients, but i had none at home, so i took basil instead.

  • 1-2 bunches of radish leaves
  • 1 cup of basil leaves (or parsley leaves)
  • lemo zest
  • lemon juice of 1/2 lemon
  • pepper, salt
  • 120ml olive oil
Just mix all of the ingredients well with your blender et voilá - done!

You can enjoy the radish leaves pesto as a salad dressing, with some pasta or as a dip.

  1. Interessantes Rezept! Hört sich lecker & gesund an! :)


  2. Bereits unsere Großmütter wussten die verdauungsfördernde und antibakterielle Wirkung von Radieschen zu schätzen! Als altes Hausmittel werden sie eingesetzt bei Erkältungskrankheiten und Magen-Darm-Problemen.
    Aber davon abgesehen - sie schmecken einfach köstlich :)
    Danke für das Rezept!!! Nancy
