Scallion Miso Butter with Spring Veggies

One of my absolute favorite springtime snacks is raw veggies served with some butter and sea salt. Simple and oh so good! I didn’t think that combination could be beat until I whipped up this scallion miso butter. This spread is not only delicious served with raw veggies and some toasted sesame seeds, but it tastes amazing smeared onto a thick slice of toast with some thinly sliced radishes. I can imagine this butter would also be great to sauté veggies in or even dolloped on top of hot pasta. The possibilities are endless and I hope you all enjoy this spoon worthy butter as much as we do.
