Dairy Free Herb Butter Roasted Turkey
This herb butter spread is dairy free and perfect for slathering up your Thanksgiving turkey. It also makes a great spread for rolls and bread. Just be sure to make two separate batches as you would not want to cross contaminate your butter while messing with a raw turkey.
I created this recipe for my daughter who is off of gluten, eggs and dairy due to some health issues. Other gluten, egg and dairy free dishes I’m making for Thanksgiving include Quinoa and Roasted Butternut Squash Stuffing and Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, Almonds and Dried Cherries.
Dairy Free Herb Butter
1/2 cup Earth Balance Olive Oil Spread
2-3 sprigs each of fresh rosemary, thyme and sage, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and mix well, then give your turkey a good rub down with it.
I usually stuff the cavity of the bird with some fresh sage, thyme and rosemary along with a cut up orange, onion and a few garlic cloves. Bake turkey according to package directions and enjoy!
