Dairy Free Garlic Butter
I came across a Bobby Flay show the other day and he was making what he calls a garlic whip. He didn't give any measurements but that's ok just the ingredients alone is all I needed. I mean how hard was it going to be to mess this up? It is so easy and so simple to make and mostly absolutely the best creation. It becomes one of those questions you ask yourself " why didn't I think of this ".
Being that this is dairy free means no saturated fat or cholesterol just plain ol' wholesome ingredients that offer many health benefits.
With just three ingredients you could make this amazing butter too without even considering buying the store bought stuff again.
These are the measurements I used.
2 tbsp EVOO
1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
Salt ( optional )
Peel the garlic & cut them up a bit for better blending. Place into your mixer with the oil & lemon juice. Pulse a couple of times to start the blending. Scrape down the sides and repeat till it's puréed.
This butter can be added to so many dishes & meals. For example you could spread it on some bread to make garlic toast, use as a sandwich spread, pizza base, mixed in for garlic mashed potatoes or garlic mashed cauliflower, drizzled over some veggies, added to a salad dressing or do what bobby flay did and rub it on some cobs of corn.
I'm truly so excited to have stumbled across this clever idea. It's going to be a new staple in my house
