Easy Family Soufflé

From starting to serving: 45 minutes. Active time: 15 minutes. Serves four. 

How the chefs explain it:
Make a cheese sauce, add yolks, fold through whipped egg whites and bake. Nothing to it really. 

  1. Find any deep oven dish, or pudding basin or cake tin and rub it with the block of butter to grease.
  2. Put a little flour in the greased dish and roll it around so the flour sticks to the butter.
  3. Tap the flour out and put it back with the rest of the flour.
  4. Put all the butter and flour into a saucepan over medium heat and stir till lightly golden.
  5. Add the milk a third at a time and stir till thick.
  6. Stir in the cheese then remove from the heat.
  7. Add the egg yolks one by one and mix well.
  8. In another bowl whisk the egg whites until stiff and fluffy.
  9. Gently fold the two mixes together until barely combined.
  10. Pour into the prepared dish, and bake at 180°C for about 30 mins until golden on top.

If you’re not so hungry, serve this with some leaves and a zesty vinaigrette, or for something more substantial, try our Warm Zucchini & Quinoa Salad.
