Zucchini & Sweet Corn Souffle Recipe

Zucchini & Sweet Corn Souffle Recipe

As novice gardeners, my husband and I sowed zucchini seeds—15 hills' worth! Happily, my family requests this side dish often, so it's a keeper. —Carol Ellerbroek, Gladstone, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + standing Bake: 45 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini (about 1-1/2 pounds), shredded
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 medium ears sweet corn, husks removed
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

  • 1. Place zucchini in a colander over a plate; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and toss. Let stand 30 minutes. Rinse and drain well; blot dry with paper towels. Meanwhile, separate eggs; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Grease a 2-1/2-qt. souffle dish; dust lightly with flour.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 350°. Place corn in a large saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, covered, 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Cool slightly. Cut corn from cobs and place in a large bowl.
  • 3. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add green onions and zucchini; cook and stir until tender. Stir in flour, pepper and remaining salt until blended; gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Add to corn; stir in cheese.
  • 4. Stir a small amount of hot zucchini mixture into egg yolks; return all to bowl, stirring constantly. Cool slightly.
  • 5. In a large bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff but not dry. With a rubber spatula, gently stir a fourth of the egg whites into zucchini mixture. Fold in remaining egg whites. Transfer to prepared dish.
  • 6. Bake 45-50 minutes or until top is puffed and center appears set. Serve immediately. Yield: 10 servings.

"This dish was delicious! I had problems getting the middle to cook completely but we enjoyed the cooked portions. My husband doesn't even like eggs but he went for seconds and thirds! Definitely worth another try to get the middle cooked to perfection."

"A nice fresh taste of summer! I made this with my first zucchini of the season, and it was delicious. My tween son liked it, as did my husband and I. Boiling the corn was unnecessary--I just briefly sauteed it with the zucchini and saved a step."

"Sometimes it is okay to brag... So I will take a moment to brag on my wife who prepared the lightest, most delicious, most beautiful, most unbelievable, crazy-good, melt-in-your-mouth, make your tongue jump up and slap your brain Zucchini & Sweet Corn Souffle tonight for dinner. I know for a fact that she substituted sharp cheddar cheese for the Swiss, skim milk instead of 2%, and liquid (spray) butter substitute for the butter, so the calorie, fat and nutritional info won't be exact. A nice size portion was just about 150 to 175 calories, so I had two portions! I mixed up my steamed, mixed vegetables into it on my plate. Happy day! Hope it turns out as awesome for you as it was for me! I just took the leftovers out of the fridge just to SMELL it again! I'm happier'an a tick on a fat dog!"
