Easy Carrot Soufflé by Chef Tamu Robinson
Carrot Soufflé Ingredients:
- 3 lbs carrots, peeled and chopped
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- one teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup melted, cooled butter
- 4 teaspoons all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons powdered sugar
How To Make Carrot Souffle:
In a large pot of water, cook carrots until soft (15-20 minutes) and then drain. While carrots are still hot, mash (or use immersion blender) until they are pureed carrots. Then whip them with an electric mixer in a mixing bowl with white sugar, baking powder and vanilla. Blend this carrot mixture well for a few minutes, then add flour. Mix until smooth. Add eggs and then melted butter. Mix well.
Use small individual ramekins or large baking dish to bake carrot soufflé(s). Keep in mind that the soufflé will rise; fill the mixture to the middle point rather than to the top. Bake soufflé at 350° Fahrenheit for about an hour. The middle of the soufflé must be set and the top should have a light brown color.
Remove carrot soufflé from the oven. Let cool and sprinkle the carrot side dish with powdered sugar. Serve at any temperature. Really. It is delicious at room temperature, chilled or hot! This delicious side dish is perfect for your holiday celebrations.
