At the beginning of this spring, I began to serve this lemon butter sauce with steamed artichokes. Since then, I’ve started serving it with so much more-pasta, grilled vegetables, couscous. It is deliciously butter and rich, with a lively and savory taste of lemon juice and garlic. You only need 5 ingredients to make it, and it comes together in less than 5 minutes. I mean, why not pour it all?

Once you have this recipe for lemon butter sauce in your back pocket, you will have a lot of fun experimenting with different nuts. It’s incredibly versatile, and I think you’ll find it tastes great on all kinds of dishes. Here are some useful suggestions to get started:

  • Throw it with noodles. I specifically ask for this lemon garlic butter sauce in my artichoke pasta recipe, but I don’t think you need a recipe to use it. Make a quick midweek dinner by tossing it with any form of pasta, sautéed vegetables, and Parmesan, or use it to dress your next batch of homemade pasta.

  • Serve as a DIP. I especially like it with steamed artichoke leaves or grilled artichokes.
  • Drizzle on simply cooked vegetables. You will adore green beans, grilled asparagus, grilled radish and cauliflower.
