Pistachio Butter Board Recipe

Here is how to make a trendy butter board with a healthier twist for fall…with pistachio butter. Butter boards are all the rage right now, but if your goal is to eat healthier, you’ll want to trade in that butter with a plant-based pistachio butter board.

Pistachio Butter Board Recipe

I originally created this recipe that aired in my Wonderful Pistachios (client) television segment, however, this is not a sponsored post. The inspiration for this recipe stems from this Savory Vegan Wonderful Pistachio Cheese Bites.

  1. First, make the Savory Pistachio Butter.

Combine pistachios, tahini, and seasonings in a blender until smooth. Pistachios are a great plant-protein choice because pistachios are naturally cholesterol-free and add fiber to your day. These no shells pistachios save you time!

Pistachios are a complete protein and are one of the highest protein snack nuts. Pistachios are a good source of protein and fiber, too. A serving of pistachios provides 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.

  1. Build your butter board.

Smear the pistachio butter all over a wooden board and top with your favorite seasonal toppings in different textures and flavors, like:

  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • chopped pistachios
  • pomegranate arils
  • whole roasted garlic
  • parsley leaves
  • chopped chives or thinly sliced scallions
  • flaked sea salt

3. Put your dippers on another board and include:

  • celery sticks
  • crusty whole-grain bread
  • crackers
  • cauliflower florets
  • sliced carrots
  • bell pepper planks
