Basil Pesto with Truffle Oil Plus Other Uses of Truffle Oil


I'm so happy I was finally able to share you this amazing kitchen discovery.  I may not be the first one to discover this yummy invention, but it was another EUREKA moment for me as I still have a bottle of truffle oil that's just sitting in the pantry for almost a year now, of course, who would want an expensive item left to spoil in the corner of the kitchen cabinet?

In all honesty, I could not get my kids to love the flavor of truffle oil, either the white nor the black variety.  But I just have this thing for unusual flavors that tickle the taste buds and would want you to eat more of it.



Basil Pesto with Truffle Oil

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup of parsley (I used baby kale leaves)
1/2 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, pine nuts ect., or whatever you have), I used cashew
1/2 cup Parmesan or Parmigiano Reggiano
1-2 garlic cloves
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp truffle oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp fine sea salt
¼ tsp white pepper

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in a food processor, I used a heavy-duty blender.

Store refrigerated for up to 2 days or pour into an ice tray, freeze and store frozen for up to 2 months.

When ready to eat, just heat a heaping on a medium-heat pan with additional olive oil, then toss in the cooked pasta of your choice.



Many may not agree with me on this, perhaps they never really like truffle oil, well, I used to detest it too, like the blue cheese, Gorgonzola, oyster, etc...But when your taste buds seem to grow and get old with you, you kind of adhere to new and exciting flavors, like truffle oils for one.

You know, a little truffle makes everything right...

Even Gordon Ramsay would attest to its goodness...saying, "It's a chef's delight."

Here is a video of Gordon Ramsay using just a wee bit of teaspoon of white truffle oil.  Such a well-made video of how to make Truffle Cream Cheese.


I also use truffle oil in my scrambled eggs for our morning toast or afternoon sandwich indulgence.


Truffle oil can be drizzled to French fries, popcorn and chips and can be added to other pasta dishes as well.

If you have tried truffle oil and have been enamored by it, can you also think of ways how to use it?
