  • milk
  • store-cupboard ingredients

Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    Nice recipe - I would make it again. It is certainly easy to make, it is inexpensive, and it uses common ingredients for a weekday meal. Jacques has a video making this recipe at https://food52.com/recipes/82304-cheese-souffle-recipe . As Rinshin mentioned, he mentions in the video the idea of including spinach or Swiss chard. Although I didn't do that, I think it would have definitely improved it. Jacques' daughter in the video also mentioned that she sometimes substitutes cooked zucchini or cauliflower (dried well after cooking) for the cheese. The only other modification I would consider next time I make it would be to cut back on the amount of Parmesan.

    Outstanding recipe! Excellent taste and simple to make. I’ve made traditional soufflés a number of times in the past but it was time consuming so I have not made them in over 10 years. This was a cinch to make. I lined the bottom with quick sauté of spinach which was well squeezed per listening to the video. My soufflé took about 50 minutes at 400 F and it was perfectly puffed to perfection with amazing flavor and aroma. I will now be making soufflés (this one) more often. Photo added.
