Broccoli Souffle

Author: Canadian Living

Souffle seems scary to make because it is so light and airy and appears so fragile, but it is surprisingly easy to put together. Serve with a green salad for a simple, casual dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Method

Grease 8- x 3-3/4-inch (2.5 L) souffle dish with 1 tsp (5 mL) of the butter; sprinkle evenly with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook broccoli until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water. Drain and pat dry; finely chop.

Meanwhile, in saucepan, melt remaining butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour, salt and cayenne pepper; cook, whisking, for 2 minutes.

Gradually whisk in milk; cook, whisking, until thickened, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Whisk in egg yolks, shredded Gruye cheese, remaining Parmesan cheese and mustard. Transfer to large bowl; let cool for 10 minutes. Fold in broccoli.

In separate large bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Fold one-third into broccoli mixture; fold in remaining whites.

Scrape into prepared dish. Bake on baking sheet in 375°F (190°C) oven until puffed and golden, about 55 minutes. Serve immediately.
