• Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 1 stick butter
  • Preparation Time:



  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoon dried cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon cilantro, chopped (I use basil instead)
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 6 ounces ripe avocado
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  • Put all ingredients in food processor and pulse to combine. When it comes to a paste, add a pinch of salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place butter paste in the middle of some parchment paper. Fold top half of parchment paper over butter. With 1 hand hold the 2 ends of paper, with the other hand use edge of cookie sheet to slowly slide against butter to fill roll (fold-over) of parchment.
  • Roll parchment into tube around butter, twist ends and store in the refridgerator (good for 2 weeks). Or wrap in 2 layers of plastic and freeze (good for up to 6 months).
  • Excellent on corn-on-the-cob, bread, burgers, or anything off the grill.
