Low Fat Cheese and Asparagus Soufflé

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by French Tart

A light and easy Souffle - this makes an impressive starter or a light luncheon dish! I have tried to make this a lower fat souffle than is usual. It can be served with a crispy French bread and a fresh salad if you are serving it for lunch. Use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock, if you want to make this a vegetarian souffle.

This was a mouth explosion of wonderful Flavors. I added different ingredients like caramelized sweet onions, crumbled bacon bits, asiago, fontina, chipotle chili powder and paprika for a more smoky flavor. Increased the number eggs by one, disregarded anything fat free and presented a delicious fluffy ensemble of tastiness to my monthly cooking club.
