This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

This elegant broccoli and goat cheese soufflé will wow your family and friends. Soufflés are surprisingly easy to make—the only trick is getting them on the table before they deflate. Serve with: A tomato-and-fennel salad and, for dessert, fresh strawberries drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients
Prep: 25 | Total Time: 45
  • 1 1/2 cups
    broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon
    butter
  • 1 tablespoon
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups
    low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon
    Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/2 cup
    crumbled goat cheese
  • 3 large
    eggs, separated
  • 2 large
    egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    cream of tartar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat four 10-ounce ramekins (or a 2- to 2 1/2-quart soufflé dish) with cooking spray and place them on a baking sheet.
  2. Place broccoli in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave until the broccoli is tender-crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Melt butter and oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour and cook, whisking, for 1 minute. Adjust heat as needed to prevent the mixture from getting too dark; it should be the color of caramel. Add milk, mustard, rosemary and salt and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately whisk in goat cheese and 3 egg yolks until well combined. Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Beat the 5 egg whites in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Add cream of tartar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold half of the whipped whites into the milk mixture. Gently fold in the remaining egg whites and the reserved broccoli just until no white streaks remain. Transfer to the prepared ramekins or soufflé dish.
  5. Bake until puffed, firm to the touch and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 160°F, about 20 minutes in ramekins or 30 minutes in a soufflé dish. Serve immediately.
