Part of my Saturday haul from the Canberra Farmers’ Market included ~20g of truffle, a black fungus used as a gourmet seasoning.

The nutrition data of a truffle is unremarkable, and anyway, it’s used in very small quantities.

The aroma is sweet, musty, and earthy. Difficult to imagine from my three adjective description. Much better to experience the fragrant perfume of a truffle dish first-hand.

Truffles last only 2-3 weeks – they continually lose their aroma following harvest – so I’ve decided to eat a lot of truffle mashed potato the coming weeks!

My recipe: steamed potato, savory yeast flakes, maple syrup, white pepper, grated truffle, almond milk.

Some might prefer more fat in the dish such as butter / coconut oil / cream etc. I like eating it this way – tastes pretty good.
