If you are into all things truffles, we have got something special in store for you. Truffles are a culinary fungus that grow underground and are highly priced by chefs and foodies all over! Wondering how you can add a dash of truffle love to your dishes? We have got you covered. Read on because the truffle land that you have dreamt off is here!
1. Truffle Oil
Truffle oil is a delicious way to add the flavour, taste and aroma of fresh truffle to your everyday dishes. Make a lip-smacking truffle oil vinaigrette for your salads by mixing together a teaspoon or two of truffle oil with Healthy Alternatives Pure Olive Oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and Dijon mustard.
You can even make your very own authentic tasting truffle oil by storing finely chopped fresh truffles in light olive oil or grapeseed oil. Heat the oil slight first and make sure that all the liquid is drained from the chopped truffles before you add them to the oil. Use it to flavour your favourite foods like popcorn, pizza or even a gourmet dish like filet mignon.
2. Truffle Butter
Creamy, buttery goodness with a dash of flavour and fun! Get the rich, earthy taste of truffles with a buttery twist. Truffle butter can be used to jazz up almost any savoury dish. Melt it over grilled meat or into some eggs, pasta or risotto. Here’s a quick way to get some truffle butter magic going on in your kitchen!
Mix 1 pound of unsalted butter with some white truffle oil and salt. Spoon this mixture onto a large piece of plastic wrap and form it into a log, about 1 inch thick. Wrap the log tightly and place it in the refrigerator until it’s ready to use. Now, drizzle some truffle butter love for yourself.
3. Truffle Cheese
If there’s anything better than cheese, it’s truffle cheese! Truffle cheese is any type of cheese made from milk that has been infused with truffle oil, truffle shavings or both. The earthy, garlicky, nutty taste of truffle can be added to any type of classic cheese, like gouda or cheddar. Sottocenere is an Italian truffle cheese that’s a marvel to bite into.
There are so many mouth-watering ways to devour truffle cheese! Pair truffle cheese with a slice of baguette, some plain crackers and a glass of sparkling wine. Melt it into a fondue or make a truffle mac and cheese for dinner. Now, that sounds trufflicious!
