Radieschen-Pesto mit Spargel

Radish pesto with asparagus

June 14th, 2020 | main dishes

If you get a bunch of radishes with crisp fresh leaves from your greengrocer or you can even harvest radishes in your own garden, you shouldn’t throw away the green. Try this delicious pesto. It is easy to make and tastes great, for example with asparagus.

I tried the radish pesto for the first time this year. We were thrilled: the fresh green, the aroma – just great! Of course, it does not only taste great with asparagus, but just as well with pasta, as a spread or with steamed may turnips.

My recipe is for four servings of pesto with asparagus plus two small glasses of pesto that you can use for another dish. Unfortunately, the pesto only lasts a few days in the fridge, but it is far too delicious to be left there for a long time anyway.
