Truffle Lovers’ Popcorn
The Inn at Little Washington serves a popcorn appetizer with freshy shaved truffles that is absolutely fantastic and today I wanted some of it. Since driving there is not an option today, I decided to experiment a bit and see if I could recreate (even a little bit) that amazing flavor. It’s not quite the same since I did not use fresh parsley and can’t afford to buy any of the $600/lb. truffles they keep locked in the produce department of my grocery store, but it did satisfy my craving. Here is what I came up with:
1 bag plain or light butter popcorn
4 tsp. white truffle oil
2 TBSP dried parsley
1/4c. grated parmesan cheese
1. Pop the popcorn in the microwave.
2. In large bowl, toss popcorn with oil, parsley, and parmesan cheese; season to taste.
