Gruyère and Spinach Soufflè

I have literally no time at the moment, i'm so busy with school and revision that i have no time to post! I crazily bake something in whatever free time i manage to get but then that leaves me with no time to post what i've made! I'm currently in the middle of baking cherry calfoutis, which is not going so well since i cannot find any plain flour anywhere but when i manage to make it i will make sure to make time to post it on here.

I don't usually make savoury things but these souffles are super cute and they are so fluffy and light they make great starters, main courses or whatever else you can think of! And they are really good as an alternate vegetarian main course. This recipe has been adapted for just one person and makes two small-ish souffles. That would be the right amount for two people as a starter though. I don't actually know where the recipe came from, it's something my mum tore out of a food magazine once and has adapted since then. I hope i will get more time soon so i can comment on all the lovely things you're making and hopefully find some other blogs to read and inspire me!


75g Gruyere cheese, grated
100g Spinach, cooked and chopped
12g Plain flour
12g Butter
150ml Milk
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 large egg, seperated

In a little saucepan melt the butter and sieve in the flour then cook for one minute. Whisk in the milk and continue mixing until it's a smooth, thick sauce. Then stir in the grated gruyere and mustard until it's almost melted. Fold in the egg yolk and the spinach. Whisk in the egg white and fold into the mix. Divide into two buttered ramekins and cook for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden on top at 200C.


  1. That looks fabulous! I would love to have this for my dinner this evening....or breakfast tomorrow...whenever!

  2. I really want to do a savory cheese sounds so heavenly. And yours looks fluffy and light and I bet absolutely delicious.

  3. YUM! These look delicious.
