From the Vitality Food Feature ‘GLORIOUS GARLIC‘.

A little bit of garlic herb butter goes a very long way for instilling wonderful flavour onto broiled dishes and fresh steamed vegetables. Even a dab on bread can trick a conscientious diner into thinking they’re richly indulging!


  • 1 pound unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup mashed garlic cloves (peeled cloves from about 2 or 3 heads pounded in mortar with pestle)
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 3 Tbsp dried parsley

1) Let butter come to room temperature. Add remaining ingredients and blend with hands until evenly mixed. Divide into 2 balls. Form into logs. Wrap and keep in fridge or freezer until needed. Add a thin slice to any dish that needs a bit of dressing up. Or serve a small slice at dinner table to accompany bread.
