The first time I ate home-made flavoured butter was at my boyfriend’s mum. I’m a big fan of olive oil but I fell in love with this one. It’s very smooth and you don’t need much more than a slice of bread to make it work. Now for the holidays is maybe a good starter to put on the table while food gets ready. Also good to have for a BBQ or brunch.
You can play a lot with this recipe, try other ingredients or textures and tell me how it worked out 😉
- 250 gr butter
- 2 carrots
- 1 red onion
- 70 gr tomato paste
- 3 garlic cloves
- fresh parsley
- salt and pepper
Take the butter out of the fridge for an hour to soften.
Chop the carrots and the onion in dices. Mix with the butter, tomato paste and garlic cloves using a hand blender in a bowl till everything is well mixed and minced. Add parsley, salt and pepper to taste and mix again, now with a spoon, no need of using the blender anymore.
You can store it in the fridge for 3 days or freeze it. I did a lot of it so I had some for the fridge and some for freezing for another occasion. Tip the flavoured butter onto a square of baking parchment or cling film, roll it around the butter to form a sausage shape, then twist the ends to seal.
