Flavored Butter


I'm quite fond of making my own compound or Flavored Butter at home. It's a really versatile ingredient to have in your fridge. This butter works brilliantly with bread, chicken, seafood, or vegetables. You could also dot it over your steak, sweet corn, or grilled fish. Today, I am sharing two of my favorite Flavored Butter recipes with you. Over the next couple of days, I will share a few recipes which uses this butter.

Compound/Flavored Butter

Rosemary And Garlic
1 Small Whole Roasted Garlic
2 tsp Finely Chopped Fresh Rosemary
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 Stick/1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature

Parsley, Chili, Garlic, And Lemon
4 Tbsp Finely Chopped Fresh Italian Flat-Leaf Parsley
1 tsp Chili Flakes
4 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
Zest of 1 Lemon
1/2 tsp Coarsely Ground Black Pepper
1 Stick/1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature

Method

Put the butter with all the ingredients in a bowl, and mix with a rubber spatula until well combined. Transfer the butter onto the center of saran wrap or parchment paper. Roll it up, shape into neat rolls that measure about 4 to 5 inches long and tie the ends with kitchen strings. The flavored butter can be kept in your fridge for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

  5. A colleague of mine swears by flavoured butter and always makes a stash in her freezer. After seeing yours and looking at the recipe, I am very tempted to make some as well.

  7. On the rosemary and garlic one, does 'one small whole roasted garlic' mean one clove of garlic or a whole head of roasted garlic? I feel silly asking, but I can't tell from the picture.

  8. @Anonymous: It's one whole garlic, about 6 cloves.

  9. I just made my first flavored butter a month ago...I loved it and I've been looking for other recipes! So glad I found these 2 tonight!

  10. I do something like this too! A garlic butter is really great for so many things. Amazing grilled cheese sandwiches, add a couple tablespoons to the water when making rice or pasta, hobo potato pouches.

    I make a chili-lime butter for cooking corn-on-the-cob in the slow cooker. Some lime zest, chili powder, and some salt & wee bit of pepper. Spread it on the cold corn, wrap each cob individually in foil, cook on low for 3-4 hours. I usually make them in the morning then toss them in on top of the main dish around lunch time.

  11. Hi, Angie Tee, in the Parsley Chilli Garlic Lemon Butter, are you adding any salt? If so how much? Thankyou- it looks so professional I'd love to try this.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
