Avocado butter was brought to my attention by one of my best friends. It is really easy to make and very versatile. I did not change the recipe my friend gave me very much. I added a little more garlic, a little essence and some truffle oil which really gave it a rich flavor. I really love to use this with shrimp because the flavors complement each other wonderfully. It is also great to use with steaks, chicken, fish and crab as a topping or stuffing.

2 small to medium avocados (ripe and soft, peeled and pitted)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp white truffle oil
2 oz unsalted European butter (softened)
2-3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tbsp fresh cilantro (coarsely chopped)
2 tsp cumin
1 pinch essence
kosher salt to taste
crack pepper to taste

In a mixing bowl mush avocados with a fork. Once mushed stir in softened butter. Mix in the rest of the ingredients till smooth. Serve on fish, tofu, chicken, or steak.

Stores in freezer well if you make sure there is not much air in the storage container (a ziploc works well here.)
