  •  Serve hot with tiny amounts of the following to season the top of each foamy cup: lemon zest, lemon juice, pepper, salt, olive oil OR If your lucky enough to have it – a few drops of pure Truffle oil.

Notes:

  • Please note the white truffle oil is usually not truffle oil a tall. It is a synthetic essence which is no where near real truffle oil. Use only pure truffle oil if you have it. It can be hard to obtain.
  • Reduce the amount of dried mushrooms if you want a less intense flavor.
