Compound Butter

Thai Massage tutorials and tips.

This article was provided by Mark’s Daily Apple, which is the go-to destination to learn how to lead a healthy Primal life in this hectic modern world. I find their posts usually offer some interesting opinions and useful trips and advice

As Mark has always said, the key to great food is the sauces and seasonings. This simple and versatile compound butter is yet another way you can add more flavor and richness to just about any Primal or keto meal you make. Fresh herbs add a bright taste and butter lends a smooth richness to everything from roasted vegetables to hearty omelettes to varied fish and meat dishes. Use your favorite herbs for the perfect taste you’ll enjoy!

Compound Butter

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick butter (softened at room temperature)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh oregano
  • 1/2-1 Tbsp. fresh thyme
  • Note: If using dried herbs instead of fresh, cut the amount of herbs in half

Instructions:

If using fresh herbs, wash, dry and roll together into a “cigar” shape, and finely slice, gathering up the herb pieces and cutting the pile until the pieces are very small. (If you’re using dried herbs, combine in a small bowl.)

Place the chopped herbs in the same small bowl as a stick of softened butter. Use a fork to mash the butter and combine the herbs with the butter.

When combined, place the compound butter on a small sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper, and roll into a log. Twist the ends to seal. Refrigerate for an hour to harden.

Take a tablespoon or more to add to omelettes, roasted vegetables, meats, or other dishes for added flavor and richness.

Note: To maintain freshness, store in the refrigerator in the rolled paper and a plastic container.

Other flavor options: chipotle powder, chili powder, cumin, fresh garlic, tarragon.
