Three Cheese Spinach Soufflé is an adaption of an Eating Well recipe that is quite elegant but still simple to prepare. This scrumptious dish is certainly not a traditional soufflé but the name has a nice ring to it so I just went with it. All it takes to make this tasty "soufflé" is stirring together finely chopped spinach, various cheeses and spices and then putting it in the oven. Twenty minutes later, you're ready to eat!
Three Cheese Spinach Souffle
3 ounces fresh baby spinach
2 tbsp part-skim ricotta cheese
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp reduced fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tbsp liquid egg substitute
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash of ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a small ramekin thoroughly with nonstick spray.
2. Place spinach in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped (if using a small food processor you might have to do two separate batches). Transfer spinach to a medium bowl.
3. Add ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, egg substitute, garlic, nutmeg, salt and pepper to spinach. Stir to combine.
4. Transfer spinach mixture to prepared ramekin. Bake soufflé until set, 18-22 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes, then loosen the edges with a knife and turn out onto serving plate. Garnish with a sprinkle of Parmesan, if desired.
