Notes

Things to think about with this recipe:
Not all of us like the same herbs, so if you are struggling with the thought of adding rosemary or basil to this truffle butter, don't worry we have have solutions!
  1. Basil: substitute with oregano. Instead of using 2 teaspoons of oregano already called for in the recipe, use 1 tablespoon instead.
  2. Rosemary: Use fresh thyme instead.
  3. Oregano: substitute with fresh thyme or basil.
  4. Vegan option: I recommend using vegan butter instead of dairy butter. You can also use a good quality coconut oil for this recipe. I have not tried coconut oil, but vegan butter will often stand up to recipe conversions. If you try this recipe with coconut oil, please drop us a note and tell us how it worked out.
