Keto Cheese Soufflé

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1½ tablespoons almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 large eggs, separated

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease the insides of the ramekins you’ll be using.
  • In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the almond meal and salt, until well combined. It should thicken a little, but not as much as a higher carb roux. Whisk in the almond milk and mustard, then continue to simmer for 5 minutes or until the mixture has thickened a bit more.
  • Remove from the heat then mix in the cheddar cheese and ? of the Parmesan cheese. Whisk in the egg yolks, taking care not to curdle them.
  • Beat the egg whites with a mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into the egg and cheese mixture.
  • Divide the souffle batter among the ramekins then top with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  • Transfer the ramekins to the oven then bake for 15-20 minutes or until puffy and browned. Serve immediately.
