Why I Love This Recipe

When Rex and I first got married, this was the first soufflé I learned to bake. The lemon would fill the house and instantly put Rex in a good mood. It's important to keep the home pleasant at all costs. I also use this trick on Orson.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 pound finely chopped broccoli
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
1/3 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 large egg yolks
1 garlic clove, minced
6 large egg whites
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 325°.

Cook broccoli in boiling water 4 minutes or until tender. Drain. Cool to room temperature on paper towels.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and milk in a saucepan; stir well. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in sour cream, rind, salt, yolks, and garlic; cook for 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly. Pour mixture into a large bowl, and stir in broccoli.

Beat the egg whites with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently stir one-third of egg whites into broccoli mixture; fold remaining egg whites into broccoli mixture. Spoon mixture into a 2-quart souffle dish coated with cooking spray. Place on middle rack of oven. Bake at 325° for 40 minutes. Serve immediately.

Bree, You are all that I am NOT in the housekeeping department. I was wondering if you'd like a part time job as my happy-homemaker helper. Call me!

Bree, you are my hero!! I hope to be half the woman you are some day! This sounds like an excellent recipe.
