Light Spinach Souffle

I made this Light Souffle to compare to a heavier more traditional souffle and found we all loved it as much. No need for the whole milk or extra butter, this lighter souffle is perfect.

Times

  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min

Servings

4

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
  • 4 cups baby spinach or any other green that wilts
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons all pourpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Natural & Kosher Parmesan
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Directions



Place a baking sheet in the oven. Preheat oven to 375.

Coat 4 (6-ounce) ramekins with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with breadcrumbs, tilting and turning dishes to coat sides completely.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat pan with cooking spray. Add spinach; cook for 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, tossing constantly. Place spinach in a colander; let stand 5 minutes. Squeeze excess liquid from spinach. Coarsely chop spinach.

Combine 2/3 cup milk and the next 4 ingredients (through black pepper) in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Cook for 2 minutes or until mixture is thick and bubbly, stirring constantly. Spoon mixture into a large bowl, and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in spinach, cheese, and egg yolks.

Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl, and let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Beat with a mixer at high speed until medium peaks form (do not overbeat). Gently stir one-fourth of egg whites into spinach mixture, and gently fold in the remaining egg whites. Gently spoon mixture into prepared dishes. Sharply tap dishes 2 or 3 times on counter to level. Place dishes baking sheet and bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes until puffy and golden.
