Gently melt the butter in a small frying pan, when melted add the garlic and just cook for a minute.

Cook your chosen vegetables as you wish, broccoli, beans and spinach are good steamed and served with a spoon of garlic butter poured over the top.

Courgettes are delicious lightly fried in a little rapeseed oil until lightly golden and served with a spoon of the garlic butter.

Leeks and kale are great together.  Blanch kale that has had the tough stalks removed in boiling water and refresh in cold water.  Gently cook the leeks in a little rapeseed oil until beginning to soften add a little garlic and continue cooking for a minute. Add the kale and stir to mix, season with a little salt and pepper and serve.

I made this last night and added a tiny dash of chilli and some sea salt to the butter - delicious! My carnivorous hubby loved it - WIN!
