Olive flavoured butter

20 Nov

So in my quest to being as vegan as I can, I stopped buying milk butter and buying stuff from companies such as Earth Balance who use oil to create a  butter substitute – it tastes quite good to be frank and I don’t realize that it is not actual butter.

The veg times magazine though, had an interesting recipe. Here they advised to chop up some olives, walnuts, a couple of garlic cloves, black pepper and a little rosemary and grind it all up into small pieces. Once that was done we were to mix it with the butter and freeze it all up again and use that instead.

I tried it out and can confirm it tastes really good. The only mistake I made was to use the mixer to try and mix the butter up. That’s useless and all that happened was the butter getting stuck to the sides of the mixer and smearing itself everywhere :/

The better way is to use the mixer only to chop things up and do all the mixing by hand in a bowl instead. Do try this out next time you’re thinking of using butter for your sandwiches or elsewhere. If you don’t like the ingredients above, substitute your own 🙂
