Carrot-Top and Pumpkin Seed Pesto

The fresh and flavorful ingredients of this pesto offer a great new spin on traditional pesto with the tactful use of usually discarded carrot tops.  Use the leafy greens from the carrots you buy instead of throwing them out.  Preparing this recipe will also give you an excuse to try organic carrots. From personal experience, I have to say they taste sweeter and more flavorful than the bulk carrots you purchase in bags with the stems already removed.
