It's June and wild garlic is still in season so make sure to stock up and whip up this delicious flavored butter recipe. It's a great way to add flavor to dishes without extra carbs!

What I love about wild garlic is that it's low FODMAP and ideal for those who suffer from IBS and/or SIBO. So if you can't have garlic, this the the perfect alternative for you!

How to Make Compound Butter

Making compound butter (also known as flavored butter) is easy. You'll simply mash all of the ingredients with a fork, then roll into a log and chill until set. That's it!

You will need just a few ingredients: butter, wild garlic leaves, lemon zest, olive oil, salt and pepper. It's best to use only the leaves and keep the tough stalks for making a batch of my Wild Garlic Pesto to pair with fish, seafood, or to use in your favorite keto pasta dishes.

The reason I used olive oil is to keep the butter softer and easier to spread, plus of course for those healthy MUFA fats! If you want to make it really soft and spreadable, add more olive oil as needed (up to about 1/3 cup/ 80 ml).

How To Use Compound Butter

Compound butter is incredibly versatile! Here are a few ways to serve it:

  • let melt on top of steaks, pork chops, chicken breasts, fish or seafood
  • use as a baste on a roast chicken or stuff under the skin before making Spatchcock chicken
  • serve with roasted vegetables or boiled vegetables
  • add slices in a tray bake and sheet pan dinners in the last 5 to 15 minutes of the baking process
  • let it melt over your hot cauliflower mash
  • spread on top of slices of my keto bread to make Keto Garlic Bread

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
