Ingredients

  • 60 g / 1/4 cup Mirage margarine
  • 30 g / 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 g / 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 g / 1/4 tsp powdered mustard
  • 250 ml / 1 cup whole milk
  • 30 g / 1/4 cup gouda cheese

  • 30 g / 1/4 cup cheddar cheese
  • 3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • 125 g / 3/4 cup broccoli florets, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Coat the inside of four ramekins with Mirage margarine. It’s very important to make sure that the ramekins are well greased. It helps the souffle to rise and prevents sticking. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a medium pot set over low heat, heat and stir the Mirage margarine, flour, salt, and powdered mustard until combined. Cook, whisking constantly, for five minutes.

Chef Notes

  • Only use the cleanest utensils and bowls when whipping egg whites, otherwise they won’t fluff up to their maximum vlume. To ensure utensils are properly cleaned, wipe them with vinegar.
