Introduction: Lemon Basil Butter
What is more refreshing than three of your favorite flavors all in one? I ran across this recipe when I was finding ways to use the basil I get from my CSA. It tastes best on Italian bread but this time I tried it on naan.
Step 1: Ingredients
You will need:
A bunch of basil
Zest of one lemon
A stick of butter
In the pictures I halved the recipe so you will have more than what is pictured.
Step 2: Set Aside Your Butter
It is easier to work with if your butter is a little soft.
Step 3: Prep and Add Basil
Finely chop the basil as small as you like it.
Step 4: Zest the Lemon
Since I halfed the recipe I only used half the lemon.
Step 5: Mix and Spread
Mix it all up with a fork. Like I said, Italian bread is the best. This butter could also be used on potatoes or with chicken or fish. Enjoy.
