THIS Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest is one of Oprah’s favorite things!!! Yes!
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel sooooo baaad. Remember Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music? Of course you do.
Well I can assure you that if you like truffles, one of the most expensive foods in the world, you will LOVE this truffle zest in our MARY’s secret ingredients summer box. We were able to include three little packets, so you can try it out on a variety of dishes.
I love the truffle zest on scrambled eggs. Total delish!! And also great on a baked potato.
And lately I see a lot of truffle salt around, but this zest is so much better. It is much more potent and rich – it’s wonderful!!
I used it on these green flatbeans cooked in butter and water and I’m telling you, this is amazing!! It is simple to cook and quite frankly my favorite way to cook fresh beans. If you can’t find flat beans, just use regular fresh green or yellow beans. Finishing off this simple recipe with the Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest moves ordinary green beans into the spectacular, memorable area. And all you have to do is open up this little packet of goodness and sprinkle it on.
Of course you could also sprinkle this on a little buttered pasta or even buttered corn this time of year. Experiment and have yourself some tasty fun!!
Since I will be in Italy the week after next, I wonder if I’ll be eating some truffle garnished pasta…
SABATINO TARTUFI TRUFFLE ZESTED FLATBEANS – serves 3 – 4
3/4 lb. green flatbeans
3 – 4 Tbs. water
1 packet of Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest
Trim the ends of the beans, removing any strings, and wash thoroughly.
Fill your skillet with about ¼” of water to cover the bottom and turn heat to high. Throw in beans and then top with pats of unsalted butter. SEE PHOTO.
Now let sit them a little to brown and then toss over the high heat. You want the beans to get a little brown and they will as the water evaporates. So toss to your liking – taste one for a tenderness check. The butter will start to brown and almost taste sweet. Finish with salt and pepper and place in a wide serving bowl with all the juices.
Sprinkle on the Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest. Total time should be 10 -15 minutes. This takes ordinary beans and makes them extraordinarily rich and special to make a memorable meal.
