Beet Green Souffle Recipe

Step 1

Butter a 1 qt. souffle dish; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Slice the cooked beets and line the bottom of the souffle dish with them.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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."
