Description

This puffy soufflé is filled with chopped green garlic, chives and plenty of Gruyère cheese.

Ingredients

5 T
butter
1 T
parmesan (grated)
2
bulbs green garlic
  c
flour (quarter of a cup)
2 c
milk
2
Sprigs of thyme
4
egg yolks
6
egg whites
 
Gruyere Cheese (grated )
 
chives
 
salt and pepper

Instructions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 2-quart gratin dish and sprinkle bottom and sides with Parmesan. Using a sharp knife or food processor, mince garlic.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan and let cook for 1 minute. Add flour and cook, whisking, until mixture is pale golden, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the milk and thyme sprigs, and continue to cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is thick and smooth, about 2 minutes longer.
  3. Turn off heat and whisk in salt, pepper and nutmeg. Transfer to a large bowl and whisk in egg yolks, one at a time. Whisk in minced garlic, cheese and chives.
  4. In a mixer, whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until they hold soft peaks. Using a spatula, fold a third of the whites into yolk mixture to lighten it, then fold in remaining whites, taking care not to overmix. As you fold, pluck out and discard thyme sprigs.
  5. Spread mixture in prepared pan and smooth top. Bake until golden brown and puffed, 20 to 25 minutes.
