Description

Two dairy-free spreads that make a flavorful alternative to butter. Try the garlic herb butter over veggies or the bacon butter on toast with preserves.


Ingredients

For the garlic-herb butter:

  • 5 Tbsp pork lard
  • 2 Tbsp coconut cream (from top of can of full fat coconut milk)
  • 1 Tbsp macadamia nut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp oregano (add an extra 1/2 tsp if you like oregano as much as I do)
  • 1 tsp dill

For the bacon butter:

  • 1/4 C bacon fat
  • 1 Tbsp macadamia nut oil
  • 3 Tbsp coconut cream (from top of can of full fat coconut milk)
  • 2 strips of bacon, crumbled

Instructions

For the garlic-herb butter:

  1. Add the lard and garlic to a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. When the lard has melted and the garlic is fragrant, remove from heat.
  3. Whisk in dill and oregano, then the coconut cream and macadamia nut oil.
  4. Place in a bowl in the refrigerator until solid (ingredients will separate and that's ok!)
  5. Once the butter is solid, use a hand mixer to whip and re-incorporate all the ingredients.
  6. Store in the refrigerator - it will stay spreadable.

For the bacon butter:

  1. Melt bacon fat in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Remove from heat and whisk in coconut cream and macadamia nut oil.
  3. Stir in bacon pieces. Transfer to a bowl and place in the refrigerator until solid. (The ingredients will separate and that's ok.)
  4. Once the butter has solidified, use a hand mixer to whip the butter and incorporate all the ingredients.
  5. Store in the refrigerator - it will stay spreadable.
