Now back to the garlic parsley butter recipe itself. Make sure that you chop the garlic finely before incorporating it into the butter. You don’t want to bite into chunks of garlic while enjoying your meal. I guess that isn’t so appetizing don’t you agree?
Similarly, use only parsley leaves because the parsley stems are so hard and are not appropriate for this recipe. Also, make sure that all your herbs are finely minced for best results. I usually use a food processor to chop my herbs. A food processor makes the chopping process a breeze. But this is equally achieved by using a knife. In case you can’t find parsley, substitute with coriander leaves because it works perfectly too.
Enjoy your garlic parsley butter with some homemade bread or grilled meats. This butter is also perfect for cooking. This way, you don’t have to chop your garlic every time you want to cook.
