Homemade Garlic-Herb Butter

“I’m not like a regular butter, I’m a cool butter.” - This homemade garlic herb butter.

Ok, this butter is seriously delicious. Packed with fresh herbs, garlic and a pinch of salt, you can substitute this butter blend in all sorts of dishes; rub it on a whole chicken, use it in scrambled eggs (a personal favorite), toss into pasta or with sautéed veggies, or simply spread it on toast.

Homemade Garlic-Herb Butter

Makes 1/2 cup herb butter
Prep time: 5 minutes


1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3 tbsp basil
3 tbsp dill
3 tbsp chives
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt


1. Add room temperature butter, herbs, garlic and salt to a food processor. Blend butter until herbs are thoroughly combined, about 1 minute, scraping down the sides as needed. Transfer butter to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 


If you don’t have a food processor, or prefer to prepare the butter by hand, simply chop the herbs and fold into the butter with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
