Pecan Ginger Butter Sauce

Prep Time:  20 Minutes

Yields: ½ cup


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.
