Why is ricotta cheese good for soufflé recipes?

A light, delicious healthy side dish made with two types of cheese and baked to perfection. One cheese that I used is ricotta. Ricotta cheese takes away that heavy, cheesy flavour and keeps the spinach soufflé light and tasty.

This recipe may sound complicated? But it’s not. It is a simple, fail-proof and ready for the oven in ten minutes. Nothing to it!

What makes soufflé so light?

The name soufflé comes from the French verb souffler, this means to puff up. Soufflé is a light, fluffy baked dish made with stiffly beaten egg whites folded into a sauce that has cooled and then baked. It is the egg whites that expand, making the souffle rise.

the oven temperature

The key for the soufflé to turn out perfectly is the oven temperature. If the oven temperature is too low, it will not rise properly.

Then again, if the temperature is too high, the soufflé turns into a popover with big air pockets in the middle. For best results, the oven temperature should be 350 F.

I hope you enjoy this gluten-free spinach soufflé dish. If you like spinach you must try this Hot Salmon Dip With Smoked Cheese And Spinach. Enjoy!

  • 1 lb. fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup low fat milk (for keto use full fat)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. tapioca flour
  • ½ tsp. sea salt

  • Preheat oven to 350 F Grease a 2-quart baking dish with cooking oil
  • Steam spinach for 1 minute. The spinach should be slightly wilted. This can be done in batches if you do not have a large steamer. Then chop the spinach into small pieces or use a food processor and pulse a few times. Set aside
  • In a small saucepan combine milk, garlic, tapioca flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook over medium heat while stirring until thickened. About 3 – 5 minutes
  • Remove from the heat and stir in ¾ cup cheddar cheese, spinach and ricotta cheese
  • Beat egg whites until they hold their shape. Fold the egg whites into the spinach mixture and transfer to prepared baking dish
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Top with remaining cheddar cheese and continue baking until the cheese is melted. About 5 more minutes. Remove from the oven and rest for 10 minutes before serving. The soufflé's will deflate slightly, that's normal. Enjoy!
