Cauliflower and Sausage Paleo Soufflé

Soufflé!  Ok are you still reading?  I didn’t scare you away?  Well I scared myself a bit making this because making soufflés can be quite hard but not this one!  You can soufflé just about anything and it’s so fun to make all different types of soufflés because they taste so darn good, all puffed up and decadent. 

                Soufflés are essentially lightly baked cake made with eggs and other ingredients and are typically made into deserts.  Soufflé means “to blow up” or more loosely “to puff up” which is what happens to the combination of custard and egg whites.  The base provides the flavor and the “lift” comes from the egg whites.  The most common foods used for the base are cheese, jam, fruit and chocolate.

                So when I decided to make a soufflé, my ingredients are quite bizarre for this type of dish but oh so tasty!  It was a day where I found myself needing to go to the store but staring at the fridge knowing that I could probably make something amazing out of cauliflower, cilantro and sausage.  So soufflé it was!

                It’s a really easy dish to make and it turned out surprisingly rich and delicious!  You can soufflé just about anything really!  Just decide on a base that will allow it to be light in consistency and add some interest to it.  Once the soufflé has cooked throughout, be sure to give it some time on broil to get a slightly browned top.
