Why You always Need to Stock Your Fridge with Nduja

What is nduja?

For your knowledge, it is an Italian pork sausage that is spreadable and spicy. The new ingredient that has turned out to be our favourite is something to have. This are the reason as to why you should have the ingredient alongside other recipes in your fridge.

Initially we had heard about nduja but we had never tried it. It was a good ingredient but we never knew the levels to which it will take our recipes to. With the assistance of a pioneering cured meat company in Des Moines called La Quercia, we officially had our first taste of Nduja. A rich and spicy nduja has the ability of taking your recipe to new levels. Nduja is traditionally eaten with cheese, spread on bread and stirred into pasta sauces. The ingredient can also be used for other purposes such as:

The creamy flavour that comes with grilled cheese can be broken down by this spice. A layer of nduja is slathered onto the inside of the bread.

A scoop of nduja takes your egg, cheese and bacon to the next level when topped on the sandwich. Some can also be whisked into a quiche batter.

Spicing Up Your Shellfish

While boiling your mussels you can add a few spoonful of nduja and then clam it. The great spice will spread inside the meat when the shellfish opens and thus flavouring it.

Although we all admire roast chicken sometimes we need to spice it up.  In order to make the taste good, apply the nduja between the skin and the flesh of the chicken.

The best thing to do with your homemade pizza is to spread it with nduja instead of the tomato sauce. It gives the pizza an extra flavour of meat and it is not too spicy. We toped the pizza above with onions and mozzarella after swapping up tomato sauce with nduja. The pizza is baked for about 15 minutes before being removed from the oven. Two eggs that are freshly crashed are added on it and left to bake for around 8 minutes. This can be topped up with anything.

Major tip; A savory lardo spread called Pesto Bianco from La Quercia was used for greasing the edges of the pizza crust. This enabled it to change into perfectly crisp with a nice golden appearance and a rich flavour. It is also rumoured that the lardo also generates amazing biscuits. Nduja added on to lardo biscuits will make an excellent sandwich for breakfast.

Apart from the above ideas, we also like adding nduja to our shakshuka pans, stirring it into a warm bowl of grain and also before roasting the spread, we whip it with goat cheese to come up with a dip and coat vegetables.  La Quercia makes a number of delicious meats using nduja and the Pesto Bianco. Make sure that you add La Quercia’s Ground Pancetta into the mix the next time you are pan frying or roasting Brussel sprouts. This has surely transformed our world.
