Rosemary & Roasted Garlic Whipped Butter

Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Whipped Butter

Hi guys! Des from Life’s Ambrosia here again! Today I have brought with me a super easy way to jazz up the good ol’ fashioned bread and butter. It also happens to be a great way to kick garlic bread up a notch, class up your popcorn and makes a great substitute for regular butter in buttered noodles. Today I am bringing you Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Whipped Butter.
I have been a fan of flavored butters for a while. Sure regular butter is all fine and dandy but throw some herbs or garlic in the mix and it’s over. I could eat it with a spoon.

Not that I am advocating eating butter with a spoon.

Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Whipped Butter

But this butter is pretty dang good. First I start by roasting some garlic until its soft and golden brown. Then I simply combine the garlic, softened butter, salt and fresh chopped rosemary in the food processor and pulse a few times until it’s smooth. That’s it. That’s all you need to get a creamy, herbed garlic whipped butter. Perfect for bread.

I do add salt to this recipe instead of using salted butter. I like to control the amount of salt in my recipes so I always have unsalted butter on hand. If you only have salted, that is totally fine, I would simply omit the salt in the recipe.

Can Whipped Butter Be Left Out?

Salted butter can be left out longer than other varieties, however, leaving butter at room temperature isn’t always safe.

In unsalted, light, or whipped butter, the risk for contamination is greater.

I would keep whipped butter in the refrigerator.

Can I Use Whipped Butter for Cooking?

You can’t use whipped butter for cooking.

Whipped butter melts faster and gives off a foam.

Whipped butter does not have enough fat solid in it to use in baking.

Can You Roast Garlic in a Microwave?

Garlic can be roasted in the microwave.

Put the trimmed head of garlic in a microwave-safe bowl.

Add 2 tablespoons water to the bowl, sprinkle a little salt on the garlic and drizzle olive oil over the top.

Microwave on medium heat until the garlic is very soft, 8 to 9 minutes.

  • Hi, I love the idea of roasting the garlic before it goes into the butter. This would be scrummy spread on baguettes, hot from the oven. Without all the acrid heat you get from raw garlic. Thanks for a fab recipe. Sammie http://www.feastingisfun.com
