Why I Recommend A Garlic Presser/Crushers
I used a garlic presser for this recipe to get uniform garlic crushed results.
Garlic pressers are affordable and can be found for under 10 bucks on Amazon.
More Recipes With Garlic Butter:
- This is a quick and easy recipe. You’ll only want to cook the crushed garlic in butter for one minute over medium heat. The goal is to release a deep garlic flavor. If you don’t prefer a strong garlic flavor, slice the garlic thinly instead.
- I opted to flavor my garlic butter with an Italian blend. However, feel free to use what you enjoy. Some spices that play well with a plant-based garlic butter dipping sauce include dried basil, parsley, rosemary, and thyme.
What To Eat Garlic Butter With?
I had a fresh baguette from my local bakery. Feel free to use what you have or like. Italian bread works great if you’re planning on making garlic bread.
In this particular recipe, I used the garlic butter sauce as a spread to make garlic bread on toasted slices. Other food you can have garlic butter with includes:
- Vegan Tofu “Meatballs”
- Baked Potatoes
- Mashed Potatoes
- Savory Scones
To toast, I sliced my baguette into about 1-inch pieces. Then, I popped them into the toaster oven with the toast setting switched on and toasted them a couple of minutes on each side. Then, I brushed one side of the toast using a small brush with the garlic butter sauce.
How To Peel And Crush Garlic
To easily remove the garlic skins or peel from the clove, use the side of the knife and lay it down flat against the clove. Then, push down with force until the peel loosens up. Remove the peel from the garlic clove with your hands.
How To Store
If you didn’t eat the whole thing – what are you doing? Okay, I get it, sometimes too much of a good thing can sometimes be a “bad” thing.
Anyway, if you need to store the garlic butter dipping sauce, pour the leftovers into a small, airtight storage container for sauces.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. When you’re ready to use the rest of it, place it on the counter to soften.
Or, zap it in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds until soft or warm. Stir and serve.
Or, if you want to use your sauce as a spread, that’s fine too. No need to warm it up after it has been chilled.
