Fennel Greens Pesto

This spring’s farmers market brings beautiful large fennel bulbs that come with a rich crown of greens. I used to chop them finely and freeze them but being deep down in the freezer they seem to be forgotten. That’s why I decided to go for a simple and easy pesto that I store in a wide jar, handy to top it up and scoop the last bit of this lovely pesto with a silicon spatula. Give it a try! It goes well as a dip, a spread or in your favorite pasta.
