Black Truffle Salt – A Healthy Italian Cheese Alternative
Most black truffle salts that you find on the market will be completely made with black truffle. Each type of black salt being used in every truffle will differ greatly. Some will be coarse, some fine grains. Others may be traditional ocean sea salt, while some may be exotic or even chemical salts. Black truffles differ from other nuts in that they tend to have a tighter, nutty flavor, while the other types of nuts can have a more buttery flavor to them.
The best black truffle salt for use on pasta is a handmade product from Italy. This salt works great in making sauces for pasta, or on top of baked potatoes and brown rice. The best salt to use for this is a very salty form of oregano, which is the most common form of oregano, and it comes from the hills of Tuscany. This oregano salt goes great on pasta sauces or vegetable dishes.
The flavors of the different black truffle salts that I’ve used on pasta have been wonderful. They have a slight nutty flavor that some people love, and some don’t, but that’s a matter of personal preference. For those who like a nutty flavor, try the fleur de lis variety that has larger pieces of crystals that add to the depth of the flavor.
Pairing the Italian black truffle salts with some fresh Italian bread is a delicious combination that is also easy to make. Start by grilling some thin sliced tomatoes, cut into halves or quarters. Next, prepare some garlic, capers, and olive oil, all cut into small pieces. Season the tomatoes lightly and place on top of the hot grill.
When the tomatoes are almost burning, place a piece of flat bread on top of them, and then sprinkle over half a teaspoon of Italian black truffle salt. Cover the whole thing with aluminum foil, and then place a lid on it. Turn the oven on, and let it preheat for about five minutes. When it does, take the garlic out of its shell and then squeeze out a fresh clove of garlic. Leave the mixture inside the oven for about thirty minutes to let the garlic get into the core of the cheese.
After thirty minutes, turn the oven off, and unplug the grill. Carefully remove the tomatoes, garlic, and capers, and set aside. Now it’s time to get creative with your cheese! Place a tablespoon of your Italian black truffle salt on a plate, and then add some water or olive oil, and mix thoroughly. Add a whole bunch of basil leaves, and then take your prepared pasta and toss it in with the basil/water mixture.
Finish off the meal with a third of a cup of your favorite flavored olive oil, and add a dash of pepper. Spread that on top of your baked tortilla, and then add your sea salt and your shredded parmesan cheese. Then sprinkle on some sea salt and you have a delicious Mediterranean flavors pasta dish! Or you could use this as a base to create a variety of other meals. For example, you can make a tuna casserole with tuna, bell pepper, and onion. You could also make a creamy cauliflower soup with garlic, Rosemary, and asafetida.
