Compound butters are extremely versatile and can be extremely useful for a real food household. Prior to our real food switch, my husband and I relied on pre-seasoned sides as part of our regular meals. Knowing what we know now, we steer clear of most pre-seasoned anything to avoid unnecessary artificial preservatives.
Adding things like homemade compound butters to your fridge from time to time makes it easier to bump up flavors in everyday dishes. Here are some ways this delicious roasted garlic and herb butter can be used:
- Stir a tablespoon or two into cooked brown rice or whole wheat pasta
- Spread on whole wheat bread or biscuits
- Top a hot grilled steak, fish filet, or chicken breast with a pat
- Use it instead of plain butter on grilled cheese or a panini
