Artichoke Butter Recipe

Artichoke Butter Recipe Recipe

This butter is delicious on a piece of toasted bread, but would go wonderfully with pasta, fish or grilled veggies. 

After making sweet potato tarte amandine and purple potato lavender white chocolate torte for my first cooking demonstration in front of a live audience recently, I had a lot of leftover high quality butter, so I decided to make a batch.

I prepared the flavored butter with artichoke hearts, a bit of sea salt, fresh basil leaves and lemon. It has a brightness to it that works well in almost any savory application. I'm planning on using the butter with a simple salt and pepper crusted steak

Ingredients

Yields: 4 servings

½ pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
⅓ cup marinated artichoke hearts
2 teaspoons orange blossom honey (optional)
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
¾ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon white pepper, freshly ground


Directions

Chop the marinated artichokes into small pieces.

In a stand-mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the honey (if using), garlic, lemon juice and herbs. Add the softened butter and artichokes. Season with salt and pepper.

Garnish with more dill and parsley.

Bon appétit!


Tips

You could make cucumber tea sandwiches with the leftover flavored butter.
