Low Fat Cheese and Asparagus Soufflé

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 35 mins

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.

I haven't made a souffle for years and I was quite pleased with how this turned out, the only thing I changed was I used frozen whole green beans becauce of the cost factor and this was the first time I made this I did not want to take a chance with using asparagus, I went the full-fat route as I really never use lowfat cheese for cooking, also I used my own chicken broth next time I make this I will use the asparagus and I will make this again soon, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
