Ready to Get Cooking?

Welcome to Fast2eat! If you’re looking for easy-to-prepare, nutritious, delicious, and Fast-2-eat recipes, then you’re in the right place.

This is one of the best spinach dishes I’ve tasted. This super easy creamy spinach soufflé is a treasured recipe from my childhood. Actually, it was my childhood favorite. My mom’s version was made with eggs (egg yolks and beaten egg whites to give volume), but I’ve updated the recipe to make it faster and easier.

Surprisingly, my vegetable-avoiding son loves this spinach soufflé. This one and this Carrot soufflé are the only veggies that he eats. I have a feeling this spinach soufflé will become one of your family favorites, too.

Creamy Spinach Soufflé Fast2eat

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
This is a tasty and quick side dish--ready in just minutes. It's great with fish (my favourite option), chicken, beef, pork, and lamb.
Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Oil - or butter or margarine
  • 1 Onion - chopped
  • 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • Salt - to taste
  • 250 g Spinach - 1/2 lb - chopped
  • 3 cups Béchamel sauce - for a thicker cream, I add more 2 tbsp all-purpose flour to this Béchamel sauce recipe
  • Basil - optional to taste
  • Oregano - optional to taste
  • Parsley - optional to taste
  • Paprika - optional to taste
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese - grated

Instacart is available in the US only at the moment.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450ºF (230ºC).
  • Make a thicker Béchamel adding 2 more tbsp All-purpose flour to this Béchamel sauce recipe and set aside.
  • In a medium pot, warm oil (or butter/margarine) over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté, stirring, until soft and fragrant, but not golden.
  • Add chopped Spinach (for my mom’s original recipe, see step 1), reduce heat to low, cover and cook, occasionally stirring until wilted.
  • Add Béchamel) to the cooked spinach, stir until completely blended. For my mom’s original recipe, add step 2.
  • Pour into a baking dish. For my mom’s original recipe, see step 3.
  • If you are in a hurry, just add the Parmesan cheese, and it’s ready to serve. You don’t have to bake it, but it is delicious with the golden-brown Parmesan cheese on the top.
  • Top with some grated Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, until light golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Notes

This is a 'lite' soufflé, the faster way -- for a more traditional soufflé, my mom's way, add the following steps:
  1. Before everything, fill a bowl with ice and water; set aside. Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan; fill with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil, and add the spinach. Cover and steam until wilted, about 3 minutes. Drain, and plunge into an ice bath to stop cooking. Let cool, and squeeze out excess water. Place the spinach in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until finely chopped; set aside. You should have about 1 cup.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk 2 egg yolks until blended. Whisk in a little white sauce to temper the eggs, then add the remaining sauce, whisking until combined.
  3. Once the creamed spinach mixture has cooled, fold the mixture into the prepared egg whites: Place the 2 egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat on low until soft peaks begin to form. Increase speed to high; beat until stiff peaks form and egg whites are smooth. Transfer 1/2 of egg whites to spinach mixture; gently fold in until blended. Add spinach mixture to remaining egg whites; gently fold in until combined. Pour into the baking dish.

Blend-and-Bake Carrot Soufflé Fast2eat
The best part about this dish, unlike a traditional soufflé, is that it’s incredibly easy to make; you don’t have to whip up any egg whites.

It has everything you love about soufflés: an airy, delicate texture that almost melts in your mouth, and, of course, the sweetness and vivid colour of carrots.
