Problem: I can't get enough of truffles, but traditional options leave my pocket penniless.
Solution: Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest Seasoning, an affordable way to add rich truffle flavor into all of your favorite foods.
If you follow Oprah on Instagram (which, I mean, how could you not?), there's one particular product that's been making an appearance in her posts for years. It's Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest Seasoning, the decadent, yet affordable truffle-infused condiment that Lady O puts on everything. She's included the Italian truffle brand several times in her annual Oprah's Favorite Things list, and has even said that she doesn't leave home without her zest!
So, armed with Oprah's very prestigious stamp of approval, I took to Amazon in search of this majestic mushroom dust, and what I experienced when I finally tried it was nothing short of magical.
Unlike more common truffle-infused ingredients, like flavored salt, butter, oil, and paste, this seasoning's perfect balance of earthy black truffles and briny Kosher salt brings out the nutty savoriness you crave, without flavor-altering additives. Its minimal salt level purely serves as a flavor enhancer, so you can feel free to use it liberally without destroying your dish — though consider yourself warned, a little goes a long way!
From creamy pasta, to crispy potatoes, cheesy pizza, and even freshly popped popcorn, its indulgent lusciousness at a lowbrow price makes everything you put it on instantly taste expensive. Elevate bland foods (I seriously can't get enough of it on scrambled eggs!), or introduce a tasty new flavor profile to a traditional family recipe. You'll quickly find yourself experimenting and amping up your favorite dishes.
If you're a truffle purist, Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest is not for you. Sure, only a real truffle can give you those same levels of complex flavors, so if you expect an under-$15 shaker bottle to deliver the same rich experience as a shaved $100-per-ounce truffle, you're going to be disappointed.
But I promise that if you're willing to look past the notion that only a true truffle is a truffle, this savory seasoning is a decadent and delightful way to make meals boujee on a budget.
