Basil Compound Butter

14 Jul Basil Compound Butter

Basil Compound Butter
Yields 1
Faced with a mound of leftover stunning farmers market basil and lack of desire to make another pesto or caprese, I decided to go indulgent and make one of my favorite indulgences: compound butter. Basically, it's just softened butter mixed with any number of fresh herbs and seasonings and then chilled to re-form. Use as flavor-packed way to instantly (and fancily) enhance your roasted veggies or bread basket. I used both purple and green basil for looks, but you can just use green if purple is unavailable.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 Cup High Quality Humane Butter, softened to room temperature (not melted, just soft)
  2. 1 Cup Basil Leaves, Packed, and Finely Chopped
  3. 1 Garlic Clove, Finely Minced on a Microplane
  4. 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
  5. Pinch Sea Salt
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, combining well (You can use a hand mixer, but I like to use a rubber spatula as to not break down the ingredients, just gently fold them together until thoroughly combined).
  2. Shape into a log, roll in plastic wrap and twist both ends tightly. Place in fridge (or freezer if pressed for time) until butter has re-set. About 30 minutes.
  3. Unroll and let soften if serving with bread, or slice and serve on top of hot roasted veggies.
Notes
  1. Easily make this vegan by replacing with your favorite dairy free butter
