Soufflé

The last time I made a souffle was back in high school.

So why so long before making another? I had no ramekins. And that’s the honest truth.

Then one day a friend loaned me her ramekins after we were discussing recipes one day. So I decided to do something about the soufflé drought.

The thing is my kids as like any kids can be fussy when it comes to foods they are not familiar with. So I figured that I.would stick with something basic and not over powering, this is why I decided to go with a cheese soufflé.

The next dilemma was trying to find a cheese soufflé recipe. I ended choosing one from taste.com

They turned out awesome, and the kids enjoyed them too.

So I decided to make them again. This time a little more saner/paleo.

They didn’t rise as well as the last time I made them but I put that down to the coconut flour. I found that the ‘sauce’ didn’t thicken up as much as I would like, so I was a bit hesitant on how they would turn out.

I also used ricotta and cottage cheese to give it a really mild, subtle taste.

I ate two, kids ate one each, so there are left overs for tomorrow’s lunch.

Cheesy Omlette

I have a new love of eggs.

In fact one of my goals for the year is to have a chicken coop, so I can have free range eggs at my finger tips.

Egg whites are high in protein, and when you are trying to increase your protein intake then egg whites make it a little bit easier.

So this recipe is so super easy, and really low in calories.

Ingrediants

1 whole egg
1 egg white
50g of low fat cottage cheese (I use the Bulla Brand)
25g of frozen peas (optional)

Method

  1. Whisk the eggs and the cottage cheese together in a bowl. 
  2. Coat a small (non stick) fry pan with cooking spray (i use canola).
  3. On medium heat (for me it’s in-between gas mark 3-4 even though I have an electric oven), poor mix into pan.
  4. Add peas if using.
  5. Flip or fold when top of mix becomes solid.
  6. Serve
