This No-Cook Homemade Spicy Tomato Butter is one that you can really smear on any bread! This butter unfolds a delicious aroma that hardly anyone can resist.
The only regret I have after making this recipe is that, why the hell didn’t I make it earlier! Now I can officially say that I am a huge fan of flavored butter that is homemade of course! Love this idea of making your own flavored butter that you can use in any recipe. I am thoroughly enjoying using it in my regular recipes and sprucing up the flavors in return.
If you’ve never had Spicy Tomato Butter, you are missing out on something de-li-ci-ous. This compound butter is made by combining butter and other ingredients that is then used to enhance the flavor of the dishes. I have used sun dried tomatoes with almond butter, garlic and herbs and all these ingredients come together wonderfully to give me a winning dish.
This butter is ridiculously easy to make. Its a no-cook recipe and can be made in 10 minutes flat. Melt butter and almond butter to room temperature. Add chopped sun dried tomatoes, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, red pepper flakes and rock salt. Give it all a good mix.
Refrigerate it till it thickens and once it does, go crazy with it! Wondering how and where to use this flavored spicy tomato butter? Well, the options are many, but my favorites include slathering it on a warm bread, spreading it on corn of the cob, adding it to mashed potatoes, drizzling some over an omelette, mixing it in pasta or even to prepare Herbed Mushrooms Garlic Toast. Well, you can use it any time you want to dress up a simple recipe that calls for butter. That simple!Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
