Parsley Butter


  • 3–4 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped Italian parsley leaves
  • 1 pound unsalted butter (preferably cultured, at room temperature)


Place the oil into the food processor. Add the parsley and blend, scraping the sides as needed, until almost smooth. 

In a large bowl use an acrylic spatula to beat the butter until light and fluffy. This may take a couple of minutes. Scrape the parsley mixture into the butter and beat for another 2 or 3 minutes until fully incorporated. 

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or divide and mound butter on two pieces of plastic wrap, roll each to form a cylinder, twist ends of the wrap, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour. Slice in rounds to serve.
