Give me a delicious herb butter and I’ll eat it off of anything. Seriously.
It’s no secret that I am fond of Ina Garten, aka the Barefoot Contessa. During one episode, she made a batch of delicious looking sandwiches that are filled with crispy radishes and creamy butter — apparently very popular in France. While I haven’t been to France, the idea of eating a sandwich with that combination just rubbed me the right way.
That’s when it came to me. I can still have this! Radishes are crispy and are the perfect vehicle for such a delicious creation.
This herb butter is made with fresh herbs alongside radishes — sure to satisfy any crunchy craving you may have!
While saturated fat has gotten a bad reputation the past, it’s actually really healthy for us! Butter is full of these delicious saturated fats.
Radishes with Creamy Herb Butter
- 1 stick butter unsalted room temperature
- 1 tbsp thyme chopped
- 1 tbsp rosemary chopped
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
- 1 pinch sea salt
- Combine all ingredients and refrigerate.
- After the butter has hardened, set it out to become spreadable.
- Spread on top of sliced radishes.
- Sprinkle with sea salt and enjoy!
Starting with room temperature butter is recommended for this recipe, otherwise your herb butter mixture may be difficult to mix.
I always use unsalted butter because it gives me the ability to control the saltiness. Use whatever you have in your refrigerator!
For an even richer taste, try using European style butter or a brand made from grass-fed cows, such as Kerrygold. The flavor is so smooth and creamy. I sometimes eat it as-is like cheese!
Additional uses for herb butter
For those non-Keto folks in your family, this herb butter recipe tastes amazing with corn on the cob as well!
Serve with fish and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for super fresh and easy dinner.
Add additional salt and pepper to the herb butter and melt over a juicy steak for the ultimate indulgence.
Any leftover herb butter can be stored in a small bowl with an air-tight seal.
