Whipped Brown Butter With Roasted Garlic
Everything is better with butter. But this has a few steps to make this the best and most magnificent butter you’ve ever tasted. Brown the butter first for sweet, nutty flavour, then whip it up for a luxurious texture, followed by adding roasted whole garlic. Unbelievably good.
1 pack of 250g butter
1 head of garlic, slices in two around the equator
drizzle of olive oil
salt and pepper
2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes (optional)
Heat the oven to 190c
Drizzle the garlic in olive oil and wrap in tin foil. Roast for 30-40 mins until lovely and soft
For the butter. Heat butter gently in a pan. It will melt and then foam. Keep stirring and after a few minutes you will get a lovely nutty smell and the butter will begin to turn brown. It’s easiest to use a light coloured pan so you can keep an eye on it. There is a fine line between a dark beurre noisette and it getting burnt
Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl
Place this bowl over ice, or you can pop it in the fridge or freezer to cool down
Add the roasted garlic and whisk for about 5 minutes by hand or quicker with a electric whisk until it goes lovely and creamy
Add the parsley and chilli flakes, check the seasoning and enjoy!
