Title: Beet green souffle
Categories: Cheese/eggs, Harned 1994, Side dish, Vegetables
Yield: 1 Souffle
3 tb Parmesan cheese; grated
2 md Beets; cooked and peeled
2 tb Butter
2 tb Flour
3/4 c Chicken broth; hot
1 c Beet greens; sauteed
1/2 c Cheddar cheese; grated
3 Egg yolks
4 Egg whites
Butter a 1 qt. souffle dish; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Slice the
cooked beets and line the bottom of the souffle dish with them.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter, stir in the flour, add the hot
broth and continue to cook until slightly thickened, then transfer to
a larger bowl. Coarsely chop beet greens and add to the sauce along
with Cheddar cheese.
In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks; blend them with beet green
mixture. Beat egg whites until they form peaks. Fold into bowl with
other ingredients; blend well. Transfer all to buttered souffle
dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350 F. for 30 minutes, or until souffle is puffed and golden.
Ogden writes: "This may be one of the most exceptional souffles
you'll ever serve. The beet color spreads upward from the bottom
layer, creating a rosy hue throughout."
