Soufflé can sound a little fussy, but this recipe is anything but fussy! Traditional savoury soufflé recipes are a somewhat complicated affair, but trust me when I say this soufflé is easy.
Technically, because this dish contains no beaten egg whites, it is not a real soufflé, but rather a baked purée of carrots that has a fluffy and delicate soufflé-like texture. The name, carrot soufflé, is derived from its light, airy texture.
An excellent tasty and quick side dish–ready in just minutes. With a delicate soufflé-like texture and seductively slightly sweet taste. Similar in colour and flavour to sweet potato casserole. Pair it with chicken, beef (I love it with this ground beef), pork, baked ham, turkey fish or lamb for lunch or dinner, or serve it alongside a green salad for brunch.
This super easy creamy carrot soufflé is a treasured recipe from my childhood.
Surprisingly, my vegetable-avoiding son loves this carrot soufflé. This one and this spinach soufflé are the only veggies that he eats. I have a feeling this soufflé will become one of your family favourites, too.
