Goat Cheese and Herb Souffle

Serves: Makes 8 (4-ounce) servings

Ingredients:

  • Unsalted butter, softened, for greasing ramekins
  • ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, for dusting ramekins

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1½ cups goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon roughly chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 grinds black pepper

  • 4 large eggs, separated, plus 1 additional egg white
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar


Procedures:

This is an elegant goat cheese soufflé embellished with fresh herbs. It’s perfect for dinner, with a simple salad and toasted baguette slices on which to spread the creamy and tangy soufflé.

Preheat oven to 400°F and place a rack in the bottom third. Generously butter 8 (4 ounce) soufflé cups or ramekins (including the rims), coat them with Parmesan cheese, and tap out the excess.

To prepare soufflé base: Place the butter in a small saucepan on the stove over a moderate heat to melt. Once melted, remove the saucepan from the heat, add the flour, and whisk well to remove any lumps. Return to the heat and cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat and add milk slowly, whisking constantly to remove any lumps. Return to the heat and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Boil for 1 to 2 minutes, whisking, until thickened to the consistency of thin pudding. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and whisk in the goat cheese, herbs, salt, pepper and cayenne if using. Whisk in the egg yolks and set aside.

In the very clean bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a wire whip attachment, whip the 5 egg whites and cream of tartar on medium-high speed until they form firm peaks. With a silicone spatula, gently stir ¼ of the egg whites into the soufflé base to lighten the mixture. Fold in the remaining whites just until there are no more streaks of whites.

To fill soufflé dishes: Transfer the soufflé batter into the prepared soufflé dishes, filling them to ¼ inch below the rim. Transfer the dishes to a baking sheet and bake until the soufflés are set and firm to the touch in the center, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
