Are you ready to put $20 in your food processor and get excited about it? Then let’s make some roasted pistachio butter! I ground up nearly a pound of roasted pistachios, which are not cheap, in order to make homemade pistachio butter. All in the effort to help you eat as much green food as possible in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. It’s more of a brown-green, but close enough.

Makes approximately 1.5 cups


12 oz. shelled pistachios, roasted and lightly salted (about 2 cups)

Salt, to taste


  1. Place pistachios in a food processor and grind for 15 minutes, stopping regularly to scrape down the sides. It will get thick but keep going, after about 15 minutes the pistachios will turn smooth and creamy. Add salt to taste and blend. Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
