TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 cup chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

Directions

  • 1. Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Coat a 1-qt. baking dish with cooking spray and lightly sprinkle with 2 teaspoons flour; set aside.
  • 2. Place broccoli and water in a microwave-safe bowl; cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain. Place broccoli and lemon juice in a small food processor; cover and process until blended.
  • 3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in salt and remaining flour until blended. Gradually whisk in soy milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in the broccoli mixture, cilantro and curry.
  • 4. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. With a spatula, fold a fourth of the egg whites into broccoli mixture until no white streaks remain. Fold in remaining egg whites until combined.
  • 5. Transfer to prepared dish. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until top is puffed and center appears set. Serve immediately. Yield: 4 servings.
