Nutiva sent me a jar of their Buttery Coconut Oil to try for free and I was so excited to receive it, because it was already on my list to buy. I had been seeing it around online, reading what others were saying, and was looking forward to trying it myself. The following opinions are all mine!
I was really curious as to how they came up with a buttery flavor that was organic. This is from Nutiva’s website describing what the buttery flavor is made from:
Our vegan “buttery flavor” is made from pure certified organic non -GMO plants including sunflower, coconut and mint.
One of the first things I thought of using it on was vegetables. Since our family had to quit using cow-dairy several years ago, I really miss the taste of butter and buttery veggies sounded so good. I normally use refined coconut oil when cooking my veggies, so I was really looking forward to trying it this way. I put it together with two of my favorite ingredients that I like to add to broccoli – lemon pepper seasoning and nutritional yeast. If you haven’t tried nutritional yeast before, it gives food a cheesy flavor. With the addition of the Buttery Coconut Oil it was delicious, sort of like a dairy dream.
My family has also been enjoying it on biscuits, toast, and grilled sheep cheese sandwiches. I’ll be needing more of it since our jar is already almost cleaned out. Thank you, Nutiva, for making such a good tasting and healthy way to add butter flavor back in our lives!
