Soufflé

Master the basics

Eating clean gets a lot easier once you have mastered a few essential recipes. This recipe is basic, not like basic unicorn basic, more like beard and flannel basic. Back to the point (which isn’t Unstable unicorns), having basic skills and recipes in your arsenal means you will never be left with only UberEats as your weeknight options. Once you master this recipe, the possibilities are endless.

Time for a secret

I’m going to tell you something, and it may be hard to believe, but I promise you it’s true. 

A Soufflé is easy to make.

Honestly, it is. I was like many people and thought a Soufflé would be impossible to get right. It’s not, truth be told, it is so easy it’s ridiculous. This soufflé is so simple to make I am more than happy to crack them out for breakfast on the weekend. They look impressive and taste amazing; the bonus is that you can customise them, and it doesn’t impact the basic recipe.

If you want to make something to impressive for breakfast, this is a winner.

Souffle recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 egg whites
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 cups cheese, grated

Instructions

Separate the eggs into two large bowls. 

Make sure to use a large bowl for the egg whites and good sized one for the yolks.

Beat the egg whites until they are stiff peaks; I would recommend using an electric whisk if you have one.

Beat the egg yolks and mix in the cheese. 

If you are adding any vegetables, this would be the time to put them in.

Take one third of the egg whites, mix and beat it into the egg yolks. 

You don’t have to be gentle at this point; you want to mix in the egg whites, so you have a nice smooth egg mix.

Now is the time to be gentle when folding in the rest of the egg whites.

Add in small amounts, and work in whites in gently you want to keep as much air as possible in the mix.

Grease 4 ramekins and spoon the mixture into them. 

Take care not to get any of the mix up the sides, as this will burn when you cook it.

Bake at 180 degrees C/ 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. 

Don’t open the oven if you can help it. 

The time they take to cook can vary depending on what other ingredients you have included.

Serve them straight from the oven.
