A note about How to Make Garlic Butter - a simple garlic butter recipe

Herbs are God and nature's gifts to us. While the use of herbs and herb remedies has brought excellent results for many people, do note that their health benefits may be limited when they are used in isolation. However, when combined with some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition, the impact on one's health will be greatly magnified.

In natural health and healing, we believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases. We also believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man’s understanding. It is thus a good idea to apply these fundamental health steps no matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem.

A simple Garlic Butter Recipe

Ingredients Required

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic - the amount of garlic used can be varied according to one's taste and preference for intensity. You may want to start slow, say with 2 cloves, and slowly work your way up.
  • 1 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano

    How to Make Garlic Butter - Preparation Steps

  • Using an adequate container, melt the butter in the oven (Personally, I do not recommend using the microwave oven as that changes the nature of foods and make them potentially harmful to our bodies).
  • An alternative to melting the butter in the oven is to work it on a plate using a knife or a spoon until it becomes slightly soft.
  • Crush and mince the garlic cloves into a fine paste.
  • Mix the melted or soft butter and garlic paste to make a spread or mixture.
  • Add the basil and oregano to this spread or mixture.
  • Whisk thoroughly with the olive oil until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add salt as per your requirement and taste preference.

    Alternative Choices - how to make garlic butter a little differently

  • Many garlic butter recipes actually do not contain olive oil, so this is a personal preference.
  • Some recipes contain lemon juice instead. This tastes good when the garlic butter is used for fish, green beans, or any other foods which go well with lemon juice. 1 teaspoon of lemon juice could be added - this is optional.
  • The herbs used could be varied - for example, 2 teaspoons of finely minced parsley could be used instead of the basil and oregano. Chives could also be used.
  • Some people also add pepper or parmesan cheese; again, this is according to personal preference.

    I hope this simple garlic butter recipe has given you an idea of how to make garlic butter. Garlic butter can be great with fish as well as steamed vegetables.

    All in all, garlic butter is a simple addition to your recipes which can help you reap the amazing health benefits of garlic.
