spinach souffle


Souffles. A dish that is infamous for falling flat as a pancake. Contrary to popular belief though, making a loud noise does not make them collapse; it's all to do with temperature. Sorry if that bursts your bubble, but you can no longer use that excuse to keep everyone quiet when you are looking for some peace.

Souffles were first invented in the late 18th century by a French chef called Beauvilliers. In French, the actual word 'souffle' means 'puffed up', which is what happens to the eggy mixture when exposed to high temperatures. Because they collapse when exposed to cool temperatures - as my picture demonstrates - souffles should be served right away if you care about presentation. To me it does not really matter; they still taste the same afterwards. Based on the brands I used, this spinach souffle I made should be about 208 calories per serving.
