Pecan Ginger Butter for Vegetables

Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Yields: ½ Cup

Comment: Put this flavored butter on your favorite vegetables for a great addition to any meal. This butter is especially good with green beans, but can also be used on broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus or any other vegetable.


  • ¼ cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 tbsps softened butter
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 pound of your favorite vegetables

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spread pecans out on a cookie sheet and toast for 3-5 minutes or until fragrant. Blanch vegetables until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes for green beans. To make butter, mix pecans, ginger, butter, and salt in a small bowl until blended well. Sauté vegetables in a small skillet until heated through. Add butter and stir until melted.
