Herbed Goat Cheese Soufflé

I have never made a souffle before this one, but simply got in the mood to try it when looking through Julia Child’s recipes a few days ago. A classic French dish is beautiful in presentation and would be lovely for entertaining some guests. Here is a recipe for a beautiful souffle with aromatic scent and the scrumptious taste of smooth goat cheese.

Makes 2 Personal Souffles

3 tbsp of shaved parmigiano reggiano cheese

1/2 cup of buttermilk

2 large egg yolks

4 large egg whites

2 tbsp. unsalted butter

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 tsp of fresh thyme

2 tsp of fresh rosemary

2 tbsp. all purpose flour

6 oz. goat cheese

salt & pepper to taste

And of course a glass of wine for you while you make it 🙂

Preheat your oven to 350 F. Grease two souffle dishes with butter very well. Sprinkle with a little parmesean cheese, but not all of it.IMG_9459

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the buttermilk, set aside.

In a medium bowl or stand mixer, whisk your egg whites until light and fluffy but not too firm. I highly recommend using a stand mixer if you have it available, unless you want a good arm workout. 😉

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add garlic, thyme, and rosemary (which smells like heaven at this point) and cook for about 2 minutes. Whisk in the yolk/buttermilk mixture and continue whisking for 1 minute.

Remove the saucepan from heat and add the goat cheese. Stir until it has melted and combined; season with salt & pepper. Fold in the egg whites carefully.

Pour the batter evenly into each of the prepared dishes and sprinkle with the remaining parmesean cheese. Bake for 22-24 minutes until light golden brown on top. Enjoy!
