Black truffle salt is all the rage this season. It’s like taking fine Italian food and cooking it on the table in a big ole’ pile of breadcrumbs. It’s so good, people are lining up for salted caramels to go with that roast chicken. Don’t worry, it’s not too salty because this is not the same as regular table salt. This is a different kind of salt that comes straight from the oven.
Black truffle salt has been around for many years but it’s only now that people are really starting to realize the delicious flavor that comes with it. A lot of people love it on its own or in breads and desserts but many people swear by it when it comes to cooking mushrooms. That’s because black truffle salt adds such a wonderful flavor to mushrooms that it makes them almost melt in your mouth. If you have never tried this seasoning, I guarantee you will after you’ve eaten it and then again, you will swear by it.
A lot of people think that truffle salt isn’t a great way to season foods because it’s basically a “salt” version of everything else. However, there’s a little trick that can help you get more out of using it. Here are a few different ways in which you can use it to spice up your cooking.
scrambled eggs – Many people use it to add a little zip to their scrambled eggs. There’s nothing wrong with this and in fact, it can be a very good thing if you’re trying to reduce the amount of salt in your diet. Basically, the way that black truffle salt works is that it takes the excess moisture out of your eggs so they don’t taste like eggs at all. This is great if you’re trying to avoid dairy products and instead try to go with a healthier egg alternative. Since it also provides a nice flavor, this is one of those great ways to use it in conjunction with other seasonings.
Pasta – This is another one of those ways to use black truffle salt in the kitchen. This is especially effective if you have sauerkraut on hand. When you make this kind of soup, you’ll find that the spices used in this recipe will have a much greater impact than if you just leave the vegetables and meats alone. The reason why is because the oils from the sauerkraut add an incredible flavor to the pasta. It will also help to take the edge off the cheese and sour cream that are already present in this kind of soup. Another bonus is that the sulfurous nature of these spices take away the bland taste that may be present in the meat and cheese mixture.
As you can see, there are many ways that black truffle salt can be used in the kitchen. These are just a few ideas and as always, you’ll find that the flavor will intensify depending on what you pair it with. For instance, you could make a creamy, cheesy pasta dish or even a lasagna sauce. You could even top steamed broccoli salad with it for maximum flavor. Just make sure you take the time to experiment so you can come up with delicious dishes that will absolutely surprise your guests!
