Chervil Butter with Carrots

Chervil Butter with Carrots

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, warmed to room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons chervil, minced
  • 3 carrots
  • Chervil sprigs to garnish
  1. Make the chervil butter: stir together in a small bowl the butter, salt and minced chervil until well mixed. 
  2. Using a knife, remove the stem end of each carrot, then cut them into 1/4 inch thick slices on the bias.
  3. Arrange the carrot slices on a platter or plate. 
  4. Spoon the chervil butter into a pastry bag fitted with a small star tip and pipe a small rosette of chervil butter in the center of each carrot slice. Alternatively, just use a spoon and dollop a small amount on each carrot slice.
  5. Garnish the platter with chervil sprigs and chill for at least 20 minutes before serving to firm up butter.
