Fresh Spinach Souffle with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

Yield: 4 servings


  • Souffle
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 3/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup low-fat or skim milk

  • Garnish
  • 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs (basil, sage, tarragon, dill, chives)

Heat oil in small pan and saute spinach 2 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Puree cottage cheese, Parmesan, and milk together until smooth. Add eggs; blend until smooth. Add sauteed spinach.

Lightly grease 1-cup ramekins and fill each with 1/2 cup egg mixture. Microwave ramekins on high setting 4 to 6 minutes or until egg mixture puffs. Do not overcook. Turn souffles onto individual plates and sprinkle with cheddar cheese and fresh herbs. Top with sun-dried tomato sauce and serve.

    Very quick and easy. As far as the sauce, I think I would use a roasted garlic clove…otherwise it is a little raw tasting.
