Working with a butter menu means working with a condiment that makes up everything sinful. This rich savory food will make the blandest of dishes flavorful and self indulgent. You could even try making the butter at home, it really isn’t that hard. Here are some super enticing dishes for a butter menu that will have everyone wanting seconds.


Peanut Butter Smoothie 

In the mood for glugging down something rich, decadent and sinful? This is your ideal drink. Made with everything that tastes heavenly, vanilla icecream, peanut butter, whole milk and peanut butter, this smoothie can easily work as a meal replacement.


Black Eyed Peas with Lemon Butter Sauce

Take advantage of the lemons and parsley that flourish during the winter months to make this piquant, festive sauce for black-eyed peas. This dish requires for the juice and zest of one lemon to bundle citrus brightness without wasting any of fruit. Adding parsley and the lemon zest makes the sauce striking as well as mouth-watering. This is a fantastic dish for a potluck, a buffer or a fancy dinner.


Plum Butter 

This is a delicious spread to use on bagels, sandwiches, croissants or just eat by itself. If you have large plums, you might want to quarter them.  Make sure they are pitted before you start with this recipe.  Place the sugar and plums in your slow cooker and leave this mixture to cook for 16 hours. Stir a few times through the day.  Add vanilla. Flavorings for fruit butters should be mixed at the end. Cinnamon might be a nice blend here. Process in a hot water bath for ten minutes and then let the jars cool on a flat rack.


Broccoli with Orange Butter 

This really could be a great vegetarian bowl of goodness. It ranks high on the health meter and if you are fond of broccoli, it doesn’t get any tastier than this.  Basmati rice is a great accompaniment for this scrumptious dish. It literally takes ten minutes in the kitchen and you will be in and out in no time. It makes a nutritious supper for those who are health conscious and will deliver your body great benefits. Use a stick on organic, unsalted butter, melt it and whisk in the orange juice and zest to make the sauce.


Butter Chicken 

The most delicious part about the dish is the sauce. This is made by heating and mixing butter, pureed tomatoes, and various spices along with fresh cream. Cashew paste can also be added, and will make the gravy richer and more savory. Of all the spices added to the dish it is dried fenugreek leaves that adds the most value to the characteristic flavor of the dish. Once the sauce is prepared, the prepared chicken is chopped and cooked until the gravy and chicken are mixed well. The dish may be garnished with butter, fresh cream, sliced green chilies.
