Zucchini souffle is a light and savory side dish with a flavorful Parmesan cheese topping. It is served hot and goes well with chicken, fish, beef, and pork main dishes.
What Main Dishes Go Well With a Souffle?
Chicken, Fish, Beef and Pork all go well with a souffle. This zucchini dish is a perfect accompaniment to Pork Tenderloin. The easy casserole makes a delicious and nutritious side dish and is a great way to use up zucchini in a recipe!
How To Prepare Zucchini Souffle
The souffle can be cooked in a 7 x 11 casserole dish or pan for a serving size thickness that goes well as a side dish.
It could also be prepared in a 9×13 casserole dish and cut into small squares for appetizers.
Be sure to blot dry the grated zucchini between paper towels so that the moisture does not weight it down. That’s one of the secrets to a light souffle!
Pour in a casserole dish.
Top with Parmesan cheese and bake.
What is a Souffle?
According to Wonderopolis “Soufflés are light and puffy cakes made with egg yolks, beaten egg whites, and a variety of other ingredients. Soufflés can be served as a savory main course or sweetened to be a delicious dessert.”
What is the Trick to a Souffle?
Be sure to whisk room temperature eggs fully. This gives them volume to puff up when baking. Another trick is to be sure all ingredients are small pieces (hence the grated zucchini) and are dry so the water doesn’t weight them down.
What Deflates a Souffle?
A souffle will fall easily it it has been baked too long and is dried out. Test for doneness about 5 minutes before expected done time and be sure it jiggles slightly. Remove before it cooks too long and looses its texture and becomes dry. The trick is keeping an eye on it before the end of cooking time.
