Though there may be many types of truffles that grow in various parts of the world, each with their own set of flavour and appearance, one thing they have in common is that they are highly nutritious and packed with health benefits.
Along with many other wonderful things that come out of Europe (olive oil, truffles), sardines are equally long known for their array of health benefits. No wonder the Mediterranean diet is among the healthiest in the world, right!?
Not only is olive oil a wonderful agent for carrying the flavour of foods and spices, it is anti-inflammatory, high in antioxidants and brings depth to the appetite. It enhances both sweet and savoury dishes and can be used uncooked or cooked.
